Summary:
The Industrial Revolution was powered by coal. The black ore fueled the boilers of the trains that brought progress to America and furnished power to the factories that made the nation an economic dynamo. And coal made many Americans very rich indeed. This episode of the acclaimed AMERICA'S CASTLES series showcases the magnificent mansions made by the magnates of coal. Tour Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, British Columbia, whose owner died just months after his massive home was completed. Eventually made into a museum, it boasts some of the finest stained glass windows ever made. Stained glass also shines in Pennsylvania's Linden Hall, whose Tiffany windows are valued today at five to seven million dollars. Meet the curators of Blithewold, a 45 room stone and stucco mansion in Newport, Rhode Island where exotic gardens and landscaping are maintained according to nearly century-old plans. From fortunes wrested from the earth to some of the finest Victorian homes ever built, AMERICA'S CASTLES tells the gripping stories of the COAL BARONS and their magnificent homes.
