Some of America's greatest fortunes were made from the steel and steam of the railroads. And the RAILROAD BARONS celebrated their wealth in stately homes filled with rare woods, inlaid marble and opulent furnishings.
From the turreted extravagance of The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion to the private gym where America's first Olympic gold medalist trained, AMERICA'S CASTLES visits these splendid sites. Tour Hildene, home of President Lincoln's son Robert Todd, which boasts a 1,000 pipe Aeolian organ. Marvel at the magnificent art collection of The Hay House, purchased with profits made on the Georgia Central and Macon and Western Railroads. And curators and historians tell the stories of these historic homes - and the fortunes behind them.
Brilliant designs, stunning art and captivating stories come together in the mansions of the RAILROAD BARONS.
