Starting today, Christmas Tours of the Newport Mansions, November 21 to January 3

Three of Newport’s most magnificent mansions - The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House—are opening their doors for the annual Christmas at the Mansion tours starting on Saturday, November 21, 2015 and running through Saturday, January 3, 2015. All three mansions are National Historic Landmarks and icons of the Gilded Age in America.

They will be filled with thousands of poinsettias, fresh flowers, evergreens and wreaths and 24 decorated Christmas trees.  Dining tables set with period silver and china complete the elegant setting, while windows of each mansion are lit with individual white candles, in keeping with the colonial tradition. 

The mansions are maintained by the Preservation Society of Newport County.  Here is a complete schedule of upcoming events at the mansions through 2016.
