Summary:
In the years after the Civil War, as the south wearily rebuilt, a new generation of wealth established itself. Most of these men made their fortunes in cotton, and the mansions of these Cotton Kings rival the finest ante-bellum plantation homes. AMERICA'S CASTLES goes inside these exquisite homes, starting with the Swan House in Atlanta. Built in the 1920s, it is a perfectly symmetrical Palladian house detailed both inside and out with swans. Its more than 30 rooms are all resplendent with original furnishings. Bishop's Place in Galveston was completed in 1893. The mansion ranges in style from French Renaissance and Romanesque to Moorish and Tudor, with fabrics, furniture and woodwork imported from Europe. Marvel at the exquisite murals and the fireplace that was the hit of a World's Fair! Visit Moody Mansion in Galveston, completed in 1895. Rich oak paneling, an 800-square-foot dining room and coffered ceilings are some of the features. And finally, tour New Orleans' Longue Vue a spectacular example of mid-20th century living at its best. It's a privileged view at the finest homes in Dixie.
