The backyard seemed never ending, especially with the vast expanse of the ocean just beyond.
Sadly, Cornelius only got to enjoy one summer of good health at The Breakers. He died 4 years after its completion of a stroke. Thankfully, his daughter wisely sold the house to the Preservation Society of Newport County (for a mere $365,000) so that her father's legacy could live on and be appreciated by thousands of visitors every year.
I hope you've enjoyed this little photo tour of The Breakers!
