Governors Lived Here

What happens to the homes of heads of states when governors move on from their governor's mansions?

More than one ex-governor's house (including one featured in the following slides) has enjoyed a second career as a wedding and events venue. A handful of them have been converted to bed and breakfast guest houses (including one featured in the following slides). And a whole lot of them simply continue to serve as residences for future, less gubernatorial families.

Among the aforementioned governor's homes for sale, provided by Trulia.com and LuxuryRealEstate.com, discover one governor's summer getaway by the beach, and another mansion that that was built as a WPA project and housed some 17 governors. Click ahead to see them all.
