The Historical Mansions of Newport, RI

As the warmer weather approaches, it is the perfect time to plan a trip to Newport, RI.  One of the famous, must see tourists sites are the famed Newport Mansions.  Lands End Limousines proudly shares a brief overview of some of the mansions you can tour.

The Elms
Bellevue Avenue is home to most of the beautiful mansions. The first house to be built on Bellevue Avenue is  Chateau Sur Mer.  The Elms is located on Bellevue Avenue close to the center of town and is easily accessible by foot. Isaac Bell House has been recently restored and is one of the best surviving examples of shingle style architecture in this country.  A landmark of the Gothic Revival style is the Kingscote Mansion, also located on Bellevue Avenue. The Vanderbilt family built a home utilizing 500,00 cubic feet of marble in its construction.  The home is aptly named Marble House.  Known for  hosting most of the lavish parties of the Gilded Age, Rosecliff mansion still hosts weddings and events today. If you're interested in art, Rough Point holds one of the area's most remarkable collections of private art.  The home once belonged to American tobacco heiress Doris Duke and some of her personal items and furnishings can still be viewed.
