The Strickland Family, 2007-present
Ted and Frances Strickland moved into the residence in January 2007. The Stricklands were committed to continuing the work of the Tafts by stressing the historic importance of the Governor's Residence, and showcasing Ohio's culture, history, industry, and agriculture. They were also interested in furthering the educational potential of the Heritage Garden. In addition, they highlighted alternative energy resources through initiatives like the Solar Project and plans for a green building extension to the Carriage House.
