The Roberson Mansion, part of the Roberson Museum and Science Center, is a home in Binghamton, New York. It was designed by Binghamton architect C. Edward Vosbury and built in 1904.

It is said to be very similar to the McKinnon House in Utica, built in 1899, which Vosbury also designed.cite web|last=Englert|first=Robert T.|title=National Register of Historic Places Inventory/Nomination: First Presbyterian Church (Utica, NY)|url=http://www.oprhp.state.ny.us/hpimaging/hp_view.asp?GroupView=6064|date=September, 1988|accessdate=2008-04-02 and [http://www.oprhp.state.ny.us/hpimaging/hp_view.asp?GroupView=6063 "Accompanying 19 photos, exterior and interior, from 1988"] ]

The mansion is supposedly haunted by the ghost of it's former owner, Alonzo Roberson. His spirit is believed to still roam around and apparitions have been seen in the elevator and along the upper corridors.
