“Symposium – Peabody & Stearns”: Resort Architects

Newport is fortunate to have had many of the most notable American architects of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries design buildings within the community. Peter Harrison, Richard Upjohn, Richard Morris Hunt, H.H. Richardson, Horace Trumbauer and Stanford White are just a few of the architects who were prominent on a national level to have designed buildings in the “City by the Sea.” But there is also a tremendous richness of work by those who were more noted on a regional level. One such architecture firm was Peabody & Stearns, which is the topic that has been selected for this year’s Newport Architectural Symposium to be hosted and organized by the Tennis Hall of Fame for Saturday May 7. Last year’s symposium on McKim, Mead and White sold out well in advance so, if you are interested in participating, please acquire your reservations soon. More
