As one of the oldest and richest states in America, New Jersey has some pretty remarkable houses.

We have old homes, expensive homes, spooky homes, and famous people's homes, but one publication took on the task of naming each state's most famous home.

The website of Mr. This Old House himself, Bob Vila, took the challenge and picked one piece of remarkable real estate for each U.S. state.

Of course, there are houses that are exceptionally famous, like North Carolina's massive Biltmore Estate, California's imposing Hearst Castle, and I don't think anybody will argue with Graceland as the pick for Tennessee.

So, what about New Jersey?

The folks at BobVila.com went with the Garden State's Governor's Mansion, Drumthwacket (which is also the most fun to say if you ask me).

The 184-year-old Princeton estate has been home to Garden State governors since 1966.

The whole list is really worth checking out, with celebrity birthplaces, some of the largest private homes in the country, and a pair of Frank Lloyd Wright masterpieces that are over two thousand miles apart.
