Beacon Rock Mansion

The Beacon Rock estate, located off of the Ocean Drive at 147 Harrison Ave in Newport, RI, sits on eight acres and features two thousand feet of frontage on Brenton Cove, overlooking Newport Harbor and Fort Adams.

A Greek-inspired design, the mansion was referred to as the “Acropolis of Newport”, and features 48 monolithic columns and open porches of solid marble.

Commissioned in 1887 by Commodore Edwin D. Morgan, the building was designed by architect Stanford White of New York’s renouned McKim, Mead & White firm. Check out this video for more!
