Atlanta, GA – Today First Lady Marty Kemp, in partnership with Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB), launched two digital tours of the Georgia Governor’s Mansion.
“I’d like to thank GPB for their tireless work in creating these digital tours of the Governor’s Mansion – or as Brian, the girls, and I like to call it: the People’s House,” said First Lady Kemp. “We are just caretakers of this beautiful home in our service to the state, and we are grateful for this opportunity to share it with all Georgians.”
“As Georgia’s leading digital content provider for the classroom, GPB’s education division is uniquely positioned to provide a media-rich experience for students with these interactive tours of the Governor’s Mansion,” said GPB President and CEO Teya Ryan. “With our skilled production team and learning-based approach, this project will help provide a real-world understanding of our civic lives and the functions of our state government.”
Through the virtual tour, a guide will share the rich history of the Governor’s Mansion and its Federal Period collection of furniture, artwork, and décor.
