Governor, First Lady to Host Christmas Tours

Tours of the Governor's residence will be available Friday, Dec. 2 – Sunday, Dec. 4 and Thursday, Dec. 8 – Sunday, Dec. 11.

Governor Bill Lee and First Lady Maria Lee are once again opening up the Tennessee Governor’s Residence to the public for 2022 Christmas Tours beginning on December 2. 

The theme for the Christmas décor at the Tennessee Residence this year, “The Gift of Giving,” portrays the various ways Tennesseans use their time and talents to give to others throughout the holiday season with a focus on the ultimate gift that is received — the birth of Christ. 

“We are excited to highlight the ways that we can all serve our neighbors throughout the Christmas season as we are reminded that giving of ourselves and our resources not only benefits others but blesses us as well,” said First Lady Maria Lee. “Bill and I are honored to welcome our fellow Tennesseans to the Residence as we reflect on life’s most meaningful gifts and celebrate the hope we have in Christ, who is the greatest gift of all.”

More than just Christmas Tours

In partnership with the First Lady’s initiative, Tennessee Serves, the Lees are continuing their holiday tradition of inviting Tennesseans to join them in giving back by bringing items to donate to nonprofits from across the state including Birth Choice, Mid-South Food Bank, My Friend’s House, Mission of Hope and Boys & Girls Clubs of Chattanooga. 

Christmas tours will be available Friday, Dec. 2 – Sunday, Dec. 4 and Thursday, Dec. 8 – Sunday, Dec. 11. All tours are self-guided, free to the public and require a reservation. The Tennessee Governor’s residence is located at 882 Curtiswood Ln. S, Nashville.
