Biltmore House

Record #:
Biltmore House, the home of George Vanderbilt near Asheville, opened to the public in 1930. When William Cecil, Vanderbilt's grandson, returned to claim his inheritance in 1960, he found the property beginning to show signs of age and losing money. Over the next two decades Cecil spent millions upgrading the property, which now attracts over 400,000 visitors a year.
