RICHMOND, Va. - Gov. Terry McAuliffe and his wife, Dorothy, greeted the public at an Executive Mansion open house after Saturday's inauguration and parade.

The line stretched down the street leading to the front gates of the mansion, which was built in 1813. It's the nation's oldest governor's residence still being used for that purpose. Visitors were brought in a few at a time.

The McAuliffes greeted people in a room that was originally used as the governor's office. The mansion's executive director led each person or family into the room and introduced them to the governor and first lady. McAuliffe shook hands and posed for pictures.

McAuliffe asked a state employee if he had any advice for the new boss. The employee said just let state workers do their jobs.
