More About Rosecliff
Rosecliff was commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, and was modeled after Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. By the home's completion in 1902, it reportedly cost $2.5 million.
The impressive mansion has been used in many films, including The Great Gatsby, True Lies and Amistad.
Rosecliff's last private owners, Mr. and Mrs. J. Edgar Monroe, of New Orleans, gave the house, its furnishings and an endowment to the Preservation Society in 1971.
