George Vanderbilt, while visiting Ashville, NC,
decided it would be the perfect place to build his home.
Built in 1895, it is known as the largest American home.
This 250 room mansion is filled with art treasures and is a
museum within itself. It took 6 years and 1,000 men to
complete this home containing 4 acres of floor space. One has
only to look at it grandeur to realize the prominent legacy
it continues to uphold.
