America's Castles: The Astors - Beechwood, Cliveden, Hever Castle The wealthy Astor family has long owned elegant homes, in both America and Europe, in which they lived and entertained their guests. In Newport, RI, the mansion known as Beechwood was once the home of high society's Caroline Astor, the woman who many believe created the country's first social register. This A&E program also features the stately Cliveden House where Lady Astor once lived high above the Thames River in England. Finally, the Hever Castle in England, purchased in 1903 by William Waldorf Astor, is shown, surrounded by its many lavish gardens. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
