SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah's first family now has a new place to call home.

Today, moving trucks arrived at the Governor's Mansion as Governor Jon Huntsman, Junior and his family move in.

First Lady Mary Kaye Huntsman plans to start unpacking boxes and arranging the rooms today.

The governor and his wife left the decision whether or not to move into the mansion up to their six children.

The mansion was built back in 1902 by Utah Senator Thomas Kearns.

In 1937, Kearns' widow donated the house to the state and it became the governor's residence.

In 1977, Governor Scott Matheson had the mansion's restored and it was finished in 1980.
