(CBS) — After 45 years, the leaky roof at the Illinois governor’s mansion is finally being replaced.
A former governor’s daughter recalls the place was dilapidated when she and her family arrived in the late ’60s.
Elizabeth Ogilvie Seimer is the daughter of Richard B. Ogilvie, Illinois 35th governor. Ogilvie died in 1988.
Liz moved into the Springfield mansion in 1969 and says even then the house was in more than just a mild state of disrepair.
