The Biltmore Just Kicked Off Their Christmas Season With The Delivery of 37′ Tall Fraser Fir

The world-famous Biltmore House in Asheville just opened its Christmas season with the delivery of their 37-foot-tall Fraser Fir tree.

Located just 125 miles west of Charlotte, America’s largest private home will now be decked out with over 50 total Christmas trees, thousands of ornaments, miles of garlands, and hundreds of poinsettias every day today through January 5th.

Here’s a video by Romantic Asheville showing the massive Banquet Hall tree being hauled onto the property by horse-drawn carriage;

George Vanderbilt first opened the home to his family and friends on Christmas Eve 1895 – with four acres of floor space, including 35 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms and 65 fireplaces.

It took 1,000 workers six years to build the 250-room castle, which is now officially the largest privately owned home in the country.
