I thought it would be fun to see some historic mansions from around the country.

Here are a few shots from New Orleans:

Look carefully at the first one- the dormers on the one to its left are that house's third story.

The second one is for sale for 12.5 Million.

The third one is where "Benjamin Button" was shot.

Not sure if it would quite qualify as a "Mansion" but it is very unique and pretty big for a house I suppose. The "Riverboat House" Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
