Terrace Hill was designed by famous Chicago architect, William Boyington. Built in 1869 by Iowa's first millionaire, Benjamin F. Allen, the residence has been restored to its original state of Victorian grandeur. Given to the state in 1971, Terrace Hill is the Iowa Governor's Residence and a National Historic Landmark. Terrace Hill has been named one of the finest examples of French Second Empire architecture west of the Hudson River.
