Biographical or historical data
Prior to the act passed on 13 February 1811 , authorizing the construction of a Governor's house on Capitol Square, a house owned by Thomas Turpin was rented for the use of the governor in 1780 near the corner of Broad and Governor streets. Shortly thereafter, a four-room house was eventually purchased from James Marsden and served as the executive's residence until the present structure was built and occupied by Governor James Barbour in March 1813.
