Summary:
The men who dominated the auto industry at the turn of the century took their tremendous profits and built splendid estates. Many of these homes are not open to the public, but they are open to America's Castles. Visit Henry Ford's Fair Lane, a mansion whose whimsical style seems at odds with the no-nonsense demeanor of its owner. Go inside the stately mansion built by Ford's only son, Edsel, whose name is forever synonymous with automotive failure. His home, however, is anything but a lemon! In Meadow Brook Hall, heiress Alice Dodge created one of the most stunning of all American homes. An exclusive tour highlights its many remarkable features. And finally, find out how Goodyear founder Frank Sieberling rolled to profits, and see footage of the construction of his English Tudor style villa, Stan Hywet Hall.
