Happy #EarthDay ! When George Vanderbilt began planning his grand estate in Asheville, North Carolina, he envisioned a self-sustaining home that would steward the land and its resources for years to come. From this vision came the United States' first planned forestry program and the beginning of a family focus on the environment. Today, Biltmore continues to honor Vanderbilt’s legacy of preserving the land and protecting the environment through programs across the estate, including initiatives that provide vital habitats for pollinators, prevent silt and runoff into waterways, and offset the estate's energy needs, and more. Visit our website to learn more about Biltmore's Environmental Stewardship programs. 📷 by Jared Kay, @amplifiedmedia 4 days ago

"For their new exhibition "A Vanderbilt House Party: The Gilded Age," @biltmoreestate teamed up with John Bright and his extraordinary Cosprop London team to recreate wardrobe worn by the Vanderbilt family in photographs, but they also have costume pieces on loan from @cospropexhibitions. On display in Biltmore’s indoor pool are two early 1900s swimsuits, while a similar ensemble is featured on the mannequin working out in the gym." - @The_Art_of_Dress For more details about our current exhibition, listed to episode 56 of @dressed_podcast : "A Vanderbilt House Party—The Gilded Age," an Interview with Leslie Klingner.
