Newport is a city set on Aquidneck Island in the New England state of Rhode Island. Its yacht-filled
harbor hosted the America’s Cup, a renowned annual sailing regatta, for many years. Newport is also
known for the Gilded Age mansions lining Bellevue Avenue, some of which are now museums. The
most famous is The Breakers, an 1895 mansion patterned after a Renaissance palace.
During the Gilded Age, America’s wealthiest families flocked to the City by the Sea and its
surrounding areas, making this their summertime playground. The meticulous preservation of more
than a dozen of these homes gives us intimate access to the artistry, personality, and complex culture
that went into these colossal time capsules. All that being said, simply having access to and enjoying
the breathtaking grounds and cliffside vantage points of these homes is a treasure.
