Widener refuses to board the Titanic

Widener escaped the accident after refusing to board the ship due to his old age.

One of Widener's sons and grandson perished in the tragedy, with only his daughter in law surviving.

55 bedrooms

The estate sits on a 34-acre piece of land and has some fantastic features, including a ballroom that could comfortably hold 1,000 guests.

The mansion, known as Lynnewood Hall, cost Widener millions to build.

It boasts 55 bedrooms, 20 bathrooms and an indoor swimming pool.

The property is owned by the First Korean Church of New York, having acquired it for a record-breaking KSh 0 in 1996, the New York Post.

Widener died three years after the Titanic's sinking, and his youngest son inherited it.
