The Biltmore Estate is an 8,000-acre property split in half by the French Broad River. Created by George Washington Vanderbilt II, the main house on the estate was built between 1889 and 1895. It was designed to resemble the architecture of the French Renaissance, and it was decorated with furnishings from countries around the world. The home features 250 rooms, a 70,000-gallon indoor swimming pool, a bowling alley and two-story library with 10,000 books. The estate was opened to the public in 1930 by George Vanderbilt’s daughter. Members of the Vanderbilt family continued to live there until 1956, when it became a house museum.
