=======View Past Year's Info===========

The glitter of gold and the sparkle of silver will dazzle you as you tour two magnificent mansions decked out in Yuletide finery. Music, tours, and spectacular decorations highlight the celebration of Christmas at the Newport Mansions.

Both houses will be lavishly decorated with hundreds of poinsettias, spectacular ornamented evergreens, wreaths, fresh flowers, dining tables set with period silver and china, decorations on all mantelpieces and many other festive touches. The 15-foot-tall ”poinsettia tree” – always a visitor favorite – will return to the Great Hall of The Breakers.

The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House--three National Historic Landmarks and icons of the Gilded Age in America--are filled with thousands of poinsettias, fresh flowers, evergreens and wreaths.

A total of 24 decorated Christmas trees reflecting individual room decor anchor many of the magnificent spaces. Dining tables set with period silver and china complete the elegant setting. And windows of each mansion are lit with individual white candles, in keeping with the colonial tradition.

We invite you to make holiday memories with your family by visiting The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House during the holiday season.

Please note: Strollers and carriages are not permitted inside any of the houses
