467. Reputable

467. Reputable
Definition: (adj) honorable, venerable
Location Placed: Kingscote Mansion, Newport, Rhode Island
Date Placed: 8/2/12 at 2:47pm

This house was definitely different than the others. It wasn't on the same mansion scale, although quite large and grand on its own. I appreciated the older touches and unique charm. It had summer bedrooms and winter bedrooms. Additionally it had quite charming (and original!) furniture as 3 generations of widows lived in the mansion. There also appeared to be lots of wonderful art work and family photos that were sprinkled throughout the place. It certainly didn't hurt that we had a few fellow tourers that were exclaiming each and every detail to be "astounding" or "amazing" or "impressive." Always nice to see people equally as excited for these tours!
