One of the larger mansions in Newport on the tour. Definitely worth the time. The decor in this mansion was beautiful.

This is a great mansion to tour. It is actually a guided tour not a self audio tour. Recommend touring the Elms before this one because the guide does make several references to it. Worth seeing.
