Hillwood, Marjorie Merriweather Post's private embassy, is featured in this tour of the opulent estates of America's wealthiest heiresses.
Their names adorn buildings, concert halls and some of America's most recognizable companies. They were the heiresses who inherited the wealth of some of America's richest families, and the homes they built celebrated their place in society.
Get an up-close look at the homes of some of the wealthiest women in American history. Tour Shelbourne Farms, the massive New England retreat of Lila Vanderbilt and her husband Dr. W. Seward Webb, one of the most beautiful rural escapes ever built. Go inside Hillwood, the final home of the dynamic Marjorie Merriweather Post, who once spent $1 million on a dining room table! And marvel at the stunning interiors of Fenway Court, the Boston home of blue-blood Isabella Gardner, in one of America's most exclusive neighborhoods.
It's an intimate look at the inner sanctums of high society, a privileged glimpse at a life reserved for the chosen few.
