George Weidner was an American businessman who died in the sinking of the RMS Titanic.

Shortly before his death, George Widener had commissioned Horace Trumbauer to design and oversee construction of Miramar, a 30,000 sqft French neoclassical-style mansion. His widow, Eleanor Elkins Widener, who was rescued in a lifeboat from the Titanic, completed the project and construction was undertaken during 1913 and 1914 and opened to friends with a large reception on August 20, 1915.

Miramar sold for $17.15 million in 2006 -apparently the highest price ever paid in R.I.! The current owners appear to be real estate investor Craig Hatkoff and his producer wife Jane Rosenthal, who co-founded the Tribeca Film Festival. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Rosenthal
