Governor's Residence


Rose Garden
The Jane Shafer Rose Garden provides a colorful centerpiece to the landscape of the Governor’s Residence. Dedicated by former First Lady Jane Shafer in 1970, the garden features over 250 roses of thirteen different cultivators. The garden was designed by Mr. James Bob of Hershey Estates and provides a spectacular show of color from mid-May through September.

Visitors can experience the beauty first hand. Each second Sunday from June through September, the people of Pennsylvania are invited to explore the Governor’s Residence gardens from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Each event will highlight a specific theme and feature outdoor, family-friendly activities.
