The Newport Mansions
Posted 9/11/2008
Within 20 years of the end of the Civil War the United States had emerged from economic ruin and begun its entrance onto the world stage. The 1880s and 1890s saw an explosion of industrialization, discovery, innovation and economic change. Wealth brought social change and the opportunity for the exploration of new themes in American fine and decorative arts and architecture, nowhere better expressed than in Newport, Rhode Island. As this podcast documents, Americans today can revisit this era at the properties of the Preservation Society of Newport County. This podcast is an excerpt from a 48 minute documentary available online at or at any Newport Mansions Store.
