Mary Alida Astor House Kitchen and Tower Additions

50 Narragansett Street
Newport, R.I.

Year Built: 1875

Following the Civil War, the property was owned by Mary Alida Astor, daughter of John Jacob Astor, to entertain high society in Newport. In 1872, the Rhode Island architectural firm of George Champlin Mason & Son was commissioned to design the main living room and music room. Later, in 1875, the Boston firm of Sturgis & Brigham added the three-story tower and kitchen wing.
