reports, and wire, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


The historic mansions of Newport, R.I., are hosting tours to show off Christmas trees, wreaths, floral decorations, period-style ornaments and windows illuminated with white candles.

Holiday tours will be held daily through Jan. 3 (except for Christmas Day) at The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House, sponsored by The Preservation Society of Newport County. The mansions will also be lit up for nighttime celebrations, music and self-guided tours, with cookies, pastries, eggnog and cider, on the evenings of Dec. 12 and 26. Tickets are $35; $28 in advance; and $10 for ages 6 to 17. On Dec. 19, The Elms and Marble House will be open from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., with one ticket good for admission to both. A Winter Passport ticket for daytime admission to all three houses is $28 ($9 for ages 6 to 17) and can be purchased through the Web site or at each property. Check the Web site for other holiday events, including a dinner dance and book signings.
