Visit the National Register of Historic Places Teaching with Historic Places (TwHP) newest online lesson plan, "Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site: Monument to the Gilded Age". Discover how the Vanderbilts became one of the wealthiest families in America and how their lifestyle influenced business, culture, architecture, and society in ways that still affect us today. Found online at www.cr.nps.gov/nr/twhp/, these lesson plans can be used by educators and students alike. By the turn of the 20th century, many wealthy families, including the Vanderbilts, had built palatial houses along the Hudson, between New York City and Albany. The Hudson River held special significance for the Vanderbilts. In the early 1800s, Cornelius "Commodore" Vanderbilt laid the foundation for the Vanderbilt fortune when he began a ferry service between Staten Island and Manhattan. Later, the family's New York Central Railroad ran along the Hudson. In 1895, Frederick Vanderbilt, grandson of the Commodore, built his country estate overlooking the river in Hyde Park, New York. With more than 600 acres of landscaped property and a palatial Beaux-Arts mansion, the Hyde Park estate came to symbolize the enormous wealth accumulated by a privileged few during the Gilded Age. Today, the Vanderbilts' Hyde Park home is preserved as Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site. Each TwHP lesson plan contains teacher material and teaching activities. Teacher material includes the following sections: Introduction, Where it fits into the curriculum, Objectives for students, Materials for students, and Visiting the Park. Teaching activities consist of the following sections: Setting the Stage (historical background), Locating the Site (maps), Determining the Facts (readings, documents, charts), Visual Evidence (photographs and other graphic documents) and Putting It All Together (activities).
