Summary:
From one of America's first noted interior designers to legendary poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, America's Castles visits the homes of some of our most influential artists. Henry Davis Sleeper fashioned the interiors of homes for Joan Crawford and Robert Vanderbilt, among others, and was one of the most sought-after and successful interior designers of his age. Visit his magnificent Beauport, a 48-room showcase of the talents of its owner set among stunning gardens. Get an exclusive look at Chesterwood, the home of noted sculptor Daniel Chester French, who made the statue of Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial. Many studies of this sculpture and magnificent original furnishings highlight the tour. Finally, see where some of the most famous works of American literature were written in a behind-the-scenes tour of the Longfellow House in Massachusetts. A classic colonial, the home was the headquarters of George Washington during the siege of Boston in 1775 and 1176.
