The Biltmore Company, owned by the family of AAA.

The Biltmore Company traces its origins back to 1895 when George Washington Vanderbilt II first opened the Vanderbilt Estate. This six year project was a grand production, with grounds designed by landscaper Frederick Law Olmsted and the house designed by Richard Morris Hunt.[1] The Biltmore Company is and always has been family owned and operated, with a goal of supporting and maintain the estate and various industries affiliated with the estate. In 1889 George Vanderbilt and wife Edith Vanderbilt expanded the Biltmore Company by purchasing a nearby town, renamed Biltmore Village. This is where employees of the estate resided. Additionally, the couple created and funded the Biltmore Estate Industries which developed a system of teaching traditional craft making. However, after George’s death both Biltmore Village and Biltmore Estate Industries were sold in efforts to keep focus on the Estate itself.[2] George and Edith Vanderbilt were extremely environmentally conscious and sold over 86,000 acres of the surrounding land to the government to build the Pisgah National Forest. The Biltmore Company still values the importance of forest preservation and utilizes techniques to ensure preservation of the soil, water, wildlife and forest of the area.[3]

Today, the Biltmore Company is still run by the descendants of George Vanderbilt; the President and CEO is currently William Cecil.[4] The Biltmore Company employs over 1,200 people that maintain the 8,000 acres of the Biltmore Estate, hotel, winery, restaurants and shops.[4] The Biltmore House is the largest privately owned home in the United States. The company claims that it hosts more than one million guests per year and the Biltmore Company functions solely through private funding.[4]
