Kingscote, Newport: 4 reviews and 10 photos
Kingscote is a beautiful Gothic Revival home built in 1839 and is one of the first summer ?cottages? to be built in Newport.
It is considered a rare survivor of a Gothic Revival style home which even includes original family furnishings that are still intact. The home was originally built by George Nobel Jones who was a plantation owner. At the onset of the American Civil War, Jones sold the property to William Henry King an Old China Merchant in 1864. The home remained in the King family until 1972 when the last remaining descendant deeded the home to the Preservation Society.
You can visit the home during the regular summer season.
Address: 253 bellevue Avenue
