Tuesday, October 13, 2009 Newport Mansions

Our attorney friend and his wife spent a weekend in Newport, Rhode Island. As this is where, in the late nineteenth century, the richest families in the country, such as the Vanderbilt's and Astor's, built their summer "cottages," the architecture was curious:

    The picture of the first building is that of Castle Hill Inn. The next several pictures are of the interior of the same building. Of interest is the woodwork over the fireplace. Im assuming the symbols are Native American and not German.  Other buildings in this series include The Elms, and The Breakers.

The richest families in America were a bit extravagant. But if you're going build yourself a little summer place, you might as well do it right.
