Breakers Mansion

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Breakers Mansion

The Renaissance style mansion was built in 1895 after a fire destroyed the manor house of Cornelius and Alice Vanderbilt, the latter of whom is believed to still haunt the house museum. Staff and visitors to the building have reported sighting her apparition on various levels of the building, and also report the feeling of being watched.
