Forty-five of the 50 United States have official mansions, which governors can live in rent-free while they are in office.

After a long day serving constituents, governors get to go home to sprawling, beautiful, historic buildings. They’re welcomed by 20-foot entrance ways; their heels ring out on marble floors. If it’s been a particularly grim day, they can wash it away with a swim in their state-shaped pool.

These official state houses, which are in 45 out of the 50 states, are meant to evoke the pride of their area. Arizona, Idaho, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont are the unlucky states without a designated mansion.

Life in the huge mansions is more public than a normal home. Visitors can often take tours, and security can be heavy. Careful household budgeting is necessary to avoid criticism from the media or constituents. Some governors have chastised reporters for calling it a mansion, and told them to call it a “residence” instead.

Take a look at the governor’s mansions of each state.
