Preserving the Legacy
Preserving the Legacy
Our team of curators, conservators and craftsmen work year-round to preserve the dream of George Vanderbilt and the visionaries who helped him create Biltmore. Guests can experience three of our recent projects—the exquisite restoration of a suite of Biltmore House’s grandest guest bedrooms, the preservation of a rare 1913 Stevens-Duryea automobile displayed in the new Antler Hill Village, and our new Legacy Exhibition, The Vanderbilts at Home and Abroad.
New! The Vanderbilts at Home and Abroad
Now Open at the Biltmore Legacy in Antler Hill Village
In this exhibition, learn more about the style and personality of the members of the Vanderbilt family during their time spent traveling the world and at home at Biltmore. Thanks to the hard work of our team of curators and Edith Vanderbilt’s hobby of photography, we can now offer more insight into the lives of the iconic family who called Biltmore home. This exhibition is included in your Biltmore Admission.
Grand Suite of Rooms Now Open
Restored to its original splendor, this suite offers visitors the first opportunity to fully see the house as a family home and the Vanderbilts as parents. The Louis XV Room itself is perhaps the true heart of Biltmore. It served as birthplace of George and Edith Vanderbilt’s only daughter, Cornelia, in 1900. Years later, it was where Cornelia delivered her own two sons, George Henry Vanderbilt Cecil and William Amherst Vanderbilt Cecil in 1925 and 1928, respectively.
Access to this suite is included in your Biltmore Admission. Learn More
Rare Automobile on Display
A rare 1913 Stevens-Duryea Model C-Six, the only car George Vanderbilt purchased that remains in the estate’s collection, will be available for public viewing for the first time at the Winery inAntler Hill Village. Viewing of this car is included in yourBiltmore Admission.
