Historic Preservation: Leland Stanford Mansion

Sacramento, California
In 2002-2004, Reyman Bros. painstakingly restored one of California’s best-known mansions to its original form and function. Working with historians, architects, and archeologists, the historic renovation team restored the mansion’s entire exterior and interiors to recapture its original lived-in beauty, including carefully-matched paints and finishes and specially-woven carpet to replicate the home’s original floor coverings. Today, the mansion serves as a home museum and international protocol center, as California is one of the few states without an official governor’s mansion.
