The Board of Mansion Supervisors, established in 1931 to make plans and designs for repairs on the Governor's Mansion, including the grounds, furniture, fixtures, and interior decoration, consisted of three members appointed by the governor for six-year overlapping terms. Along with the Board of Control its consent was needed for any changes in furniture, fixtures, and equipment belonging to the state. The board was abolished in 1965, and its powers and functions were given to the Texas Commission on the Arts.
