  • Significance: Modeled on the north Italian Villas of Genoa and Turin, "The Breakers" was designed by Richard Morris Hunt. The last of the great Vanderbilt houses he designed, it was erected between 1893 and 1895. More than any other large Newport residence, it stands as the epitome of its time and symbol of Newport's importance as the "watering spot" of the wealthy.
