Built in 1811 for Samuel Whitehorne, the Samuel Whitehorne House is an excellent example of a Federal Style mansion in Newport, Rhode Island. It features an entry portico, a formal garden, and an elegant hipped roof. Inside, its main highlights include hand carved detail, a great collection of pieces of early American furniture, and a grand central hallway. It also has parts that were worked on by Benjamin Baker, Goddard and Townsend, and Holmes Weaver, all of which were top notch artisans and craftsmen of their era.
Currently under the care of the Newport Restoration Foundation, the Samuel Whitehorne House is operated as a historic house museum. It is open for tours from May to October for a specific fee.
