Throwback Thursday: Newport Mansions

Thursday, October 8, 2015

Today's Throwback Thursday photos are from a 2010 trip I took to Newport, Rhode Island with my husband and a friend of mine to visit the Newport mansions. The mind blowing thing about these houses is that they were considered summer homes. This is just a sampling of the many pictures I took over the course of our three day stay.

This house has an eighty foot ballroom, just because the owner wanted to have the biggest one in the area. The ballroom is the center portion of the house.

If you're in the area, they're definitely worth checking out. I recommend getting a membership to The Preservation Society of Newport County. It gives you access to all of the properties at a better value compared to visiting them individually while helping support the preservation of the properties.
