DOWNTON ABBEY AT THE BILTMORE
February 5-May 25, 2015

Built in the late 1800′s, the Biltmore Estate closely resembles Highclere Castle, the setting of the popular PBS series “Downton Abbey”.  The daily lives of George and Edith Vanderbilt, their family, and servants would also have been similar to those of the characters, both upstairs and downstairs, of the drama. Highlighting this is a once-in-a-lifetime exhibit of more than 40 historically accurate costumes, created by the London Costume House, Cosprop Ltd, for Downton Abbey, showcased throughout the Biltmore in groupings inspired by the show as well as the non-fictional lives of the Vanderbilts.  Curators of the Biltmore are using this opportunity to share new stories about the Biltmore Estate and its occupants.
