The Indiana Governor's Residence was acquired by the state in 1973 to serve as the sixth official governor's residence. Renovations before it opened for official use cost more than $800,000 and included the installation of air conditioning, a parking lot, and a new vestibule entrance. However, the original Residence had not been significantly renovated since that time.
Governor Mitch Daniels and First Lady Cheri Daniels wanted a structurally sound home where all Hoosiers would feel comfortable and therefore began major renovations in 2005. The renovations included restoring the port-cochere, removing layers of paint from original woodwork, painting outside trim, repairing the masonry, installing new kitchens and bathrooms, and replacing, thereby bringing up to code, plumbing, electrical, heat ventilation, and air conditioning. Construction companies, designers and laborers from around the state worked together to complete the renovations to "the People's House" at no cost to taxpayers.
