At a staggering 22,000 square feet, The Biltmore’s pool was once the largest in the world. When it was built in 1926, Johnny Weismuller was a swimming instructor and lifeguard long before he came to be known as Tarzan. Decades later, white ghostly sculptures keep watch over swimmers and pay homage to the Golden Era when their roosts served as diving platforms.
