Nebraska: The Captain Bailey House 

Built in 1877 for Benson Bailey, a Civil War vet, this gothic revival has become somewhat famous in the state of Nebraska. Though no one knows where the home was originally built, it was at one point disassembled and moved to its new location in Brownville—and now serves as part of the Brownville Historical Society museum.

Nevada: Castillo del Sol

Since former Nevada lieutenant governor and neurosurgeon Lonnie Hammargren is known as the “Man who Collects Everything,” it makes sense that he would build a massive estate to pay tribute to his treasures. Located in Las Vegas, this not-so-humble abode features millions of dollars worth of collectibles, from roller coasters to movie props.
