Terrace Hill Iowa Governor’s Residence & National Historic Landmark Launches New Mobile-Friendly Website
Date: Tuesday, September 29, 2015
DES MOINES, Iowa--The Terrace Hill Iowa Governor’s Residence & National Historic Landmark launched a new redesigned website which will serve as a central hub for information regarding the historic Governor’s Mansion and upcoming events. The website, which can be found at https://terracehill.iowa.gov, was designed using a responsive design, meaning visitors using their smartphone or tablet to view the website will enjoy the same functionality as visitors using a desktop computer.
The website provides visitors with access to news, information about guided tours, how to make a reservation or how they can volunteer. Visitors can also easily find information about upcoming events or simply find Terrace Hill’s contact information.
“The redesign stemmed from a desire to open a new dialogue with site visitors and provide content in a streamlined format,” said Diane Becker, Administrator and Assistant to the First Lady. “The team spent considerable time ensuring the websites will serve as an essential resource for citizens seeking more information about our Historic Landmark.”
The website was redesigned in partnership with Iowa Interactive, LLC, of Des Moines. Terrace Hill Iowa Governor’s Residence & National Historic Landmark and Iowa Interactive operate under a self-funded model in which no additional tax dollars or county funds were used to develop or maintain the website.
Terrace Hill Iowa Governor’s Residence & National Historic Landmark is the eighth state agency to implement Iowa Interactive’s content management system (CMS). In addition to the CMS product, Iowa Interactive, manages the state’s official Web portal, Iowa.gov, and specializes in online government applications.
