The New Hampshire Governor's Mansion, called "Bridges House", is the official residence of the Governor of New Hampshire and his or her 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. Left to the state upon the death of his widow, in 1969 it become the governor's official residence.[2]

The current governor, John Lynch, is from Hopkinton, a neighboring town to Concord. He does not reside at Bridges House, and his official office is located in the state capitol building.

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