Biltmore really has no say in the matter, Alfred G Vanderbilt is over the land and he paid an architect to secure it. There is a really good article on the repairs and interior pictures from The Antiques Magazine in Sept 2005.......the article and photos are easily found if googled but to have a copy to see is grand as well.
I do believe there are some that would like to see it become a landmark however it appears the family doesnt feel so as it is still used. I saw also buried surrounding the tomb recent graves of Anderson Coopers father and brother and other family members buried as recently as 3 years ago.
