Art Historian Jeff Mishur presents this digital slide lecture discussing America's largest private home - the Biltmore Estate. Architect Richard Morris Hunt and landscape designer Frederick Law Olmstead collaborated on this epic project for George Vanderbilt. Mishur highlights the architecture and landscape design of the estate and draws several parallels between Biltmore and England's Highclere Castle, the inspiration for "Downton Abbey".
