The largest historic mansion in each state – 24/7 Wall St.


Owning your own home is central to the American Dream, and some Americans dream bigger than others. Over the centuries, wealthy residents of the country erected huge houses to house themselves and their families, as well as to display their wealth.

While there are grand historic homes all over the country, every state is home to at least one huge estate that towers above the rest. These mansions have thousands, if not tens of thousands of square feet of floor space. They have housed billionaires, presidents and even royalty. Most of these mansions were built between the Civil War and World War II, and many now operate as hotels or museums.

To determine the largest historic house in each state, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed media sources, local and national historic societies, tourist boards, and the National Register of Historic Places. Only houses built before 1966 were taken into account. The buildings must have served as single-family homes at some point in their history.

Many mansions on this list are associated with America’s wealthiest and most notable family dynasties – names like du Pont, Vanderbilt, and Hearst. These families, led by titans of industry who became some of the wealthiest people in history, created vast complexes, often surrounded by vast grounds, to serve as single-family homes. He is the richest person of all time in your state.
