Al Capone's Restored Miami Beach Mansion on Display

The new owners of Al Capone's mansion in Miami Beach are holding a media open house to show off an extensive restoration project.

The house where the notorious Chicago gangster died in 1947 will be on display Wednesday. The nearly 90-year-old property had been in a long decline until its recent purchase by a private investor. Miami-based MB America says it will be available for video and photo shoots.

County property records say the nine-bedroom mansion is valued at about $5.6 million.

Among those attending the event is Capone's grandniece, Deidre Marie Capone.

Capone bought the mansion on Palm Island in 1928, during the height of Prohibition. He lived there in declining health for several years after his 1939 release from prison on a tax conviction.
