The Newport Mansions offer visitors a unique trip through America’s past. Audio tours at The Breakers, The Elms, Marble House & Rosecliff bring you the personal stories of the men and women who lived in these grand mansions and the household staff who cared for them.  Now you can also tour the underground boiler room, tunnel and basement of The Breakers.  The Beneath The Breakers Tour reveals the cutting edge domestic technology that made the elegant lifestyle possible.  A unique Servant Life Tour at The Elms takes you from the basement coal tunnel to the top-of-the-house servant quarters and rooftop terrace. Don’t miss Bohemian Beauty: The Aesthetic Movement and Oscar Wilde’s Newport, an exhibition at The Galleries at Rosecliff from March 24 to November 4, 2018. Whatever your interest, you’ll find it at the 10 historic houses of The Preservation Society of Newport County. There’s something for everyone, including special events like the Newport Flower Show in June, A Weekend of Coaching in August, and the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival in September.
