Governor’s Building – Snug Harbor

Janes Walk

Led By Puiyan Taglianetti, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden

Though referred to as the Governor’s House, this home was in fact occupied by the Chief Steward, who would have worked closely with the Governor to oversee the purchases and inventory of the site. You can view Italianate architecture style throughout, exhibited in elongated windows, bracketed eaves and outside its simple porch. This building was built in 1880 by Richard P. Smyth.
