Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace is a prime example of what one might receive for helping the King of England in the 18th century.  It was a gift by the Crown to John Churchill, the First Duke of Marlborough, following its construction (1705-1724).  Its hundreds of rooms in the English Baroque style are a testament to a bygone era, preserved (oddly enough) by American fortunes.  Blenheim was also the birthplace of Winston Churchill.
