Stately and Empty

In an article in today’s New York Times, enititled, “Stately Home Awaits the Return of a Political Son,” newly elected NY governor Andrew Cuomo states that he plans to live at New York State’s Governors’ Mansion in Albany. Cuomo will be the first NY Governor to spend a considerable time at the estate since his father, Mario Cuomo was governor in the 1980s and 1990s. Unfortunately, such is the fate of many of the elaborate Governors’ Mansions throughout the United States. What with technological innovation, many Governors don’t need to be in the state capital all the time, and can conduct business elsewhere. Below are a sampling of Governors’ Mansions from states with newly elected Governors. I wonder who will be occupying these hallowed halls? 

New Mexico 

South Carolina
