From Peter Harrison to Pietro Belluschi, Newport’s architects and builders have left a remarkable legacy of great-and often groundbreaking-design. Happily, a strong local commitment to preservation (such as that demonstrated by Salve Regina University) has kept much of this legacy intact-and now Professor James Yarnall has produced a book that celebrates this historic city’s treasures with exemplary scholarship and clarity. These pages should inspire everyone who cares about America’s architectural heritage to schedule a trip to Newport right away.
