Not just any mansions -- governors mansions are provided at taxpayer expense to the current officeholder in many states.  Because of this, parts of some of them are open to the public.  Please make sure to check before you drop by -- security measures may have closed access to some of these places.  If we've missed some, please let us know by e-mail.
