The mansions of Newport are where Gilded Age splendor still resides
The mansions of Newport were built as summer homes in the 1850s to 1900 by the wealthiest tycoons on the East Coast. Now, these massive houses, including Rosecliff, Marble House, the Breakers, the Elms, Rough Point, and more, are open to the public, offering fascinating tours. Parties, balls, and performances are presented during summer, fall, and the Christmas season. The magnificent Newport Flower Show takes place yearly at Roseclilff.
