Biltmore’s story begins in the late 1880s when George Washington Vanderbilt discovered the mountainous allure of western North Carolina when traveling with his mother. Recognizing a jewel in the overtimbered countryside, he amassed thousands of acres and set about building a 250-room home and farm operation designed to be self-sustaining for his family and friends. The combination of strong family bonds and a visionary mission to preserve the estate has created one of the country’s most visited and beloved attractions.
