Why did the area around the MIA become a mansion district, and why have so many of the great homes disappeared? Local architecture historian Larry Millett explains, taking you inside the magnificent but vanished mansions that once stood around Washburn Fair Oaks Park and the nearby neighborhoods, using stories and photos from his book Once There Were Castles.
