Mostly it was the women of Newport that ran these summer houses. They would spend between 8 and 10 weeks there each summer. Activities were planned for guests (archery, croquet, tennis, swimming, horseback riding, etc.) and each house was run like a business. Parties were planned with such great thought as it was seen to be classless to seat the same people next to one another at subsequent parties. Gosh! Imagine the planning that must have gone into living in Newport and being high society. As pretty as the houses are, I'm not sure if I could keep up!
