America's Castles: The Auto Baron Estates
Henry Ford enjoyed great financial success after marketing his Model T and other cars. He was able to build one of the finest homes in America for his family that he named Fairlane, in honor of a part of Ireland where distant relatives once lived. Located in Dearborn, MI, this estate draws many tourists eager to see Fairlane's handsome interior and the seasonal varieties of roses that adorn its outdoor areas. Equally magnificent is Meadow Brook Hall, built with the wealth that flowed to the Dodge family. A&E takes viewers inside this 110-room mansion that reflects a Tudor Revival style. Finally, Frank Sieberling's home, built from the fortune he made after founding Goodyear, stands majestically in Akron, OH, a true architectural wonder designed by Cleveland architect, Charles Schneider. Its 23 fireplaces and billiard room are still elegantly furnished. Its music room even had stars like Shirley Temple and Will Rogers perform in it for the Sieberlings and their guests. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
