New Mexico's Palace of the Govenors Frances Levine talked about the history of the Palace of Governors and some of the figures who have lived in the building. She also toured several of the building’s rooms and exhibits.

This adobe structure, now the state’s history museum, was designated a Registered National Historic Landmark in 1960 and an American Treasure in 1999.
