In 1945, Government House ceased being the Lieutenant Governor's official residence.  The federal government leased the building for a veteran's rehabilitation centre.  Following renovations in 1958, it became an adult education facility, renamed Saskatchewan House.  During this time the Office of the Lieutenant Governor was moved to the Hotel Saskatchewan in downtown Regina.  In 1984, the Lieutenant Governor's working office returned to Government House.
