Newport Mansion of the Drexel Family Burns to Ground

This afternoon one of Bellevue Avenue's grand old mansions burned to the ground. The house was recently known as Stonar Lodge and was the summer home of  the Drexel family. Here is a photo of the house before it burned and a link to the site HERE . Also for more photos and video click HERE for breaking coverage. More links are on my facebook group, Mansions of the Gilded Age. A sad loss to the architectural heritage of Newport.

Stonor Lodge, Newport, Rhode Island before the fire.
