The Breakers Children’s Tour introduces kids to the great house from a unique and whimsical perspective. See where the Duke of Marlborough proposed to his future Duchess at Marble House. A unique Servant Life Tour at The Elms will take you from the coal tunnel in the basement to the rooftop terrace.

From the colonial Hunter House to Rosecliff, the Gilded Age palace built by a Nevada silver heiress, the 10 houses of The Preservation Society of Newport County reveal more than 250 years of the American Story.
