In a perfect world, we would all be spending our summers frolicking in 18-bedroom villas on the sea, just like the Astors and Vanderbilts used to. Until then, live vicariously through the Preservation Society’s intimate guided tours, thoughtful photography exhibits, and rousing classical music recitals (summer only), all of which take place inside the famous mansions. From the Versailles-inspired Rosecliff to the Breakers—Rhode Island’s most visited attraction—these museum homes are a perfect example of what privilege looked like in turn-of-the-century America.
