Overview

Commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, architect Stanford White modeled Rosecliff after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. After the house was completed in 1902, at a reported cost of $2.5 million, Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here, including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini.

In my opinion, one could feel it a more livable grandeur at Rosecliff. The scale of every room is near perfect.

Rosecliff definitely wins for having on site parking. A beautiful house with a somewhat tragic story. That ballroom, though... the ceiling, the piano. Learning a bit about Cole Porter and his history at Rosecliff was enjoyable. The art exhibits upstairs were interesting. I would have...More

We were told everyone saves Rosecliff Mansion for their last tour. However it was one of my favorites. The Mansion has a elegant simplicity as compared to the other Mansions. Rosecliff also has the largest ballroom. The place was so understated and yet so beautiful....More
