Probably the smallest of the mansions. If you are looking for glitz and opulence do not go to this mansion. If you like Newport and Area American History, pre-revolutionary war into the 1800's, this house is a must see for the Newport area.
Cost: $28 But if you plan to visit several to many mansions with another member of your family, I advise getting an annual membership for $75 (at the time of this review), which allows 2 people from the same family to go on many of the Mansion tours (even repeats) for 1 year. For us this was a superior value.
Although little of the original furnishings remain, this house is filled with history from maps, furniture, styles, occupation and family history. this house entertained the British during their occupation of Newport. It served as the center of the French Forces when they allied with the Colonies during the Revolution (read the plaque on the outside of the house).
We went to this house on Sept 30th, there were 3 people on the tour - Jason, our tour guide, proved to be very knowledgeable about every aspect of the house, from owners to history, to uses of the house.
Tour lasts ~50 minutes, I could have spent that looking at the old maps that were on the walls.
