Vanishes With the Sale of the Model
Town of Biltitore.
Kansas City Star.
The model town of Biltmore, N.
C., built by the late George 'W. Van
derbilt In connection with his magni
ficent country estate near Asheville,
has been sold to the Southern Rail
way and two individual' purchasers.
On the site chosen by 'Mr. Vander
bilt for an adventure in Utopia, the
railway coimany 'will build a two
million dollar piassenger station. So
crumble the dreams of men.
How vast a scheme Vanderbilt con
ceived for developing his North Caro
lina estato, no one \wiil ever know.
From 1892 until his death in 191-1, he
made it his 'life's work to block to
gether 120,000 acres of mountain land,
grub out the forests, plant trees, pipe
water, build roads and level off a
mountain Peak for his palatial home.
Biltmore house. The project cost him
nmore than tenl million dollars.
Two years after his death' his
widow transferred to the government
fifty thousand acres of the estate for
a national forest reserve. Now the
model town of 'Biltmore is sold, and
the millionalre's plan of rural em
pire begins to disintegrate. Did Van
derbilt dreami a fool's iparadise on
those 'North Carolina hills. He Is
dead; the dream is dust and ashes.
On a rainy day thirty years ago,
Vandeilbir's privato car was on a
side track at Asheville 'waiting to take
the young millionaire back to New
York. After a short stay lie had he
conime disgilsted with the weather, the
skyline, the hotel, with everything. ie
wias to leave on the morrow. Il'uring
the night the skies cleared and the
next morning young Vanderbilt, rising
early, watched a North Carolina sun
