The Newport Experience
Sustaining Historic Preservation into the 21st Century
Preserving a historic house is a labour of love. Preserving nearly a dozen houses, from Colonial-era Georgian to opulent Gilded Age mansions, becomes a mission. In this book, The Preservation Society of Newport County shares its 75 years of experience in conserving three centuries of the finest achievements in American architecture, decorative arts and landscape design. This fully illustrated volume is an essential resource for all heritage, architecture and preservation enthusiasts – as well as anyone enchanted by the unique grandeur of Newport, Rhode Island.
