Vanderbilt Mansion Group Tour

Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site Tours

Established as a monument to an era, this estate illustrates a way of life modeled on the English country house. For nearly two centuries, this place was home to socially prominent New Yorkers. A superb example of its type, Vanderbilt Mansion represents the domestic ideal of the elite class in the late nineteenth-century America. It provides a glimpse of estate life, the social stratification of the period, and the world of the American millionaire during the era historians refer to as The Gilded Age. 

The National Park Service preserves over 200 acres of the original property, including historic buildings, original furnishings, manicured landscapes, natural woodlands, formal gardens and associated documents. The centerpiece of the estate is the mansion, a masterpiece of American Beaux-Arts design by the distinguished architectural firm McKim, Mead & White.
