The Idaho House, the former Simplot mansion that's now Idaho's never-yet-occupied governor's mansion, will hold a holiday open house today to give the public a first look at recent renovations. The event is a benefit for the Wyakin Warrior Foundation for severely wounded veterans; donations will be accepted. It runs from 1-7 p.m., with Gov. Butch Otter and First Lady Lori Otter greeting guests from 5-7 p.m. Parking is at the base of Simplot Hill, where shuttles will run every 15 minutes to bring guests up to the house, where parking is limited. You can see the full invite for the event here.
