I am looking for different titles, buildings and sites that one eouls find in a large esate run by a coal baron. I run an outdoor haunt and have a lot of space to fill. Any ideas would be great.

Since there was always a huge gap between what the rich guy had for money and possesions versus his workers, there would be alot of angst and jealousy fueling anything like a normal relationship, as far as the emotional, psychological interrelationships would go. Alot of strong feelings that had to be subduded but may pop out if things got too intense.
An old mansion in Galena, Ill. cost $35,000 to build in the 1850's yet his hired help got room & board and 2cents a day.
Kinda hard to save up YOUR $35,000 when only 2 cents a day is coming in.
