Focus on Architecture: Newport, Rhode Island

The Breakers

The Breakers – Newport, RI

As summer comes to a close, we’re reflecting on a very architecture-focused trip we took to Newport, Rhode Island. This gorgeous town features the summer homes of society’s elite of the industrial revolution, such as several Venderbilt family residences.

The Breakers is considered the grandest of all of the Vanderbilt “cottages” and its grandeur was certainly not lost on us!
The buildings were stunning and well worth the trip! Visit the Preservation Society of Newport County to see additional photos or schedule a tour. What architecture have you marveled at during your travels?
