In The Last CastleKiernan comprehensively describes how Biltmore House came into existence from George’s first purchase of land in the Asheville, North Carolina area to the final completion and opening of the Music Room in 1976 long after the home became a tourist destination.

Mixed reviews from our members.   I felt it was a wee bit slow but completely became immersed in the history of how the Biltmore came into our view as a culture.

Let’s see what you think?
