The mansion is beautiful, over the top with marble everything and decor royale. More interesting was the story of the lady of the house, Alva Vanderbilt who was nothing short of a dictator controlling everything and everyone in the house. While Alva was a successful leader in womens rights, her dictatorship of all family members makes it an interesting historical story.
