Attraction details
Owner description: Victoria Mansion, also known as the Morse-Libby House, is the finest example of residential design from the pre-Civil War era in America. With superb architecture and well-preserved original interiors that were among the most lavish and sophisticated in their day, it is an unparalleled document of America’s highest aspirations in architecture, interior design, and the decorative arts. Our history, a quick tour, and our present-day efforts at restoring the Mansion convey an impression of the significance of this unique site, which is of national and even international importance.

“Great Christmas visit”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

Been to Newport RI mansions several times and this location was just as special. It is smaller but in some ways this was better because the property was easily toured. The decorations enhanced the already beautiful architectural details.
