New York Post features Elkins Park ‘Titanic’ mansion

The New York Post recently did a feature on an abandoned Elkins Park mansion with ties to the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.

Purchased in 1912 for 8 million dollars, Titanic investor Peter Widener intended the residence to house his son, daughter-in-law and grandson who at the time were in Europe. However, returning to America from Europe on that ill-fated day, only Widener’s daughter-in-law would survive.

From the New York Post:

The 70,000-square-foot mega-mansion has 55 bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, a great hall with a grand staircase, an indoor pool, an art gallery and a 1,000-person ballroom, according to a Historic American Buildings Survey.
