The summer homes of the rich and powerful in the 19th century and during the Beaux Arts period are an enduring monument to the taste and architecture of this time.  The Preservation Society of Newport offers tours of ten stunning houses dating from the 18th century Colonial in the Point neighborhood to the 19th century Gothic Revival, Shingle style, and to the Beaux Arts ‘cottages’ of Bellevue Avenue.  The properties managed by the Preservation Society of Newport County help illustrate the architectural diversity of Newport and the place of these houses in American History.

We’ll tour two of these properties beginning with The Breakers.  The ‘Cottage’ was built between 1893 and 1895 as a summer residence for Cornelius Vanderbilt II, a member of the wealthy Vanderbilt family.  We’ll break for lunch on your own in the harbor area, and follow up with a visit to Marble House.  After our tour, we’ll depart for home around 4Pm.
