The Government House in Port Louis is one of the most established building we can discover as yet standing charitably and goes back subsequent to the French settlement. Whilst it wasn't initially similar to it looks today, the Government House started development under the principal French governors of the island, to be specific Nicolas de Maupin (1729 – 1735) and Mahé de Labourdonnais (1735 – 1746) and served as the habitation of the last mentioned. It served as the venue for the Governor's legitimate business, and also the numerous gatherings and capacities facilitated by the tenant. Mahé de La Bourdonnais set up Port Louis as a maritime base and a shipbuilding focus. Under his governorship, various structures were manufactured, various which still stand today: a portion of Government House, the Chateau de Mon Plaisir at Pamplemousses and the Line Barracks.
