The magnificent cottages that line Bellevue Avenue are not only lasting symbols of a bygone era, but serve as a timeline of American architectural history. Focusing on the Preservation Society’s properties, the built history of Newport, and then-contemporary trends in American architecture, Abby Stewart will unpack the story of this fabled stretch of Newport. From Kingscote to Rosecliff, this lecture will look in depth at the changes in architecture and the built ideals of 19th century America on display along Bellevue Avenue
