Marble House, Newport: 8 reviews and 30 photos
Wonderful mansion that quickly moved into my tops list here. Again its a mansion I've toured more than once in both winter and summer.
The house reportedly cost 11 million dollars to build in 1892! The house was built for Alva Vanderbilt who had to top" her society rival Mrs. Astor....What a pricey case of rivalry.
The house is beautiful and a favorite is definitely the ballroom with its mythology figures.
During the Holiday season the house is beautifully decorated for Christmas. It is a must see when visiting Newport.
