Newport: History Preserved

Thursday, October 26–Monday, October 30 |

Join us in Newport, Rhode Island, during the fall high season for a tour of the architecture, arts, and history of one of the most famous summer resorts in America. 

We will explore several carefully preserved buildings from the Colonial Period through the Gilded Age, focusing on the best examples of each. Highlights will include lunch at a private house on Bellevue Avenue designed by Ogden Codman Jr., a cocktail reception at a beautiful house designed by McKim, Mead & White in the historic Ocean Drive district, and cocktails and dinner at a private yacht club.

Don Friary, director emeritus of Historic Deerfield and an authority on New England history and architecture, will accompany us.  We will have exclusive use of a beautifully restored 18th century
