Kingscote Review

This Gothic Revival mansion completed in 1841 for Georgia plantation owner Geoge Noble Jones was one of Newport's first summer cottages. Richard Upjohn designed Kingscote which was rebuilt in 1881 for the King family. The dining room contains one of the first installations of Tiffany glass windows and a cork ceiling. Furnishings reflect the King family's involvement in the China Trade.
