When we found this Mansion we were kind of "housed out'. But we stopped to walk around this huge brick structure and couldn't resist going in to the lobby. A docent was there and we asked if we could just go in the gift shop....More

Much has been restored, but there is much more to do yet. It was interesting to learn this was built around the same time as the better known Newport RI mansions were also going up. It is impressive for what they were able to build...More
