article description
Due to the surge in property values of coastal real estate throughout the United States, Newport presents a facade of relative prosperity. Few modern Newporters, due to changing demographics, and virtually no visitors are aware, however, that since the late 1930s, over one-third of Newport’s historic estates have been demolished for residential and commercial subdivision, including at least a dozen sites of national architectural significance.
