As Brown Departs, Gavin Newsom and Family Move Into Governor’s Mansion

Last Friday marked outgoing Governor Jerry Brown’s final day of living in the historic governor’s mansion. Located at 16th and H in midtown Sacramento, near the state Capitol, the residence underwent a $1.6 million renovated in 2015. Brown and his wife, Anne Gust Brown, moved into the 142-year-old Victorian home subsequently after. He was the first governor to live there since Ronald Reagan in 1967. Now they are headed to their ranch in Colusa County.

As Brown moved out, incoming Governor Gavin Newsom and his family officially announced that they also plan to reside in the mansion. The news ended speculation that Newsom may not be moving, as he had previously made comments suggesting he did not need to live in Sacramento to do the job. However, last week, spokesperson Nathan Click said that the family will live there “for the immediate future.” Governor Newsom and his wife first partner, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and their four children will bring two family dogs and a bunny rabbit with them.
