America's Castles: The Pioneers America's pioneers longed for many of the finer pleasures of life, and once their hard work payed off, many of them built beautiful mansions in celebration. This A&E program visits several of these notable estates. First, there's the Vaile Mansion in Independence, MO, with its nine fireplaces, a wine cellar, and a greenhouse. Visitors are urged to glance upward in order to see the stenciled ceilings and other ornate decorations. Next, viewers have a chance to see the elegant surroundings enjoyed by Brigham Young and his family when they lived in the Beehive House in Salt Lake City, UT. Built in 1854, this home has attractive play areas for the children and comfortable family rooms still inviting to a visitor's eye. Finally, the special charms of banker Charles Conrad's Rocky Mountain home are explored. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
