The New Hampshire Governor's Mansion, known as "Bridges House", is the official residence of the Governor of New Hampshire and the governor's family. Bridges House, located in Concord, the capital of New Hampshire, has served as the governor's official residence since 1969.

Bridges House was built by Charles Graham about 1836. Styles Bridges, governor of New Hampshire (1935–36) and U.S. senator for 25 years thereafter, lived here from 1946 until his death. Bequeathed to the state upon the death of his widow Doloris Bridges, in 1969 it became the governor's official residence.[3]

The current governor, Maggie Hassan, is from Exeter, a town in southeastern New Hampshire. She does not reside at Bridges House, but instead on the campus of Phillips Exeter Academy where her husband, Thomas Hassan serves as Principal.

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 22, 2005 as H. Styles Bridges House, reference number 05001444.
