Marble House is one of my favorite mansions in Newport.  Built in the late 1880s for the Vanderbilts it was designed by architect Richard Morris Hunt. Mr. Vanderbilt’s older brother built The Breakers. Marble House also features the Chinese Tea House on the property, built by Alva Vanderbilt after their divorce (and Mr. Vanderbilt’s death). It became a meeting place to hold rallies for women’s right to vote. The Preservation Society of Newport now allows photography at the mansions (with restrictions) so feel free to snap a photo in one of the breathtaking rooms or at the grand front entrance.
