THE BREAKERS MANSION, NEWPORT
The Breakers Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island
Cornelius Vanderbilt had the stunning Breakers Mansion built in Newport during ‘The Golden Age’ (1900-1929) and to this day it remains one of the best examples of the era.
It has formal gardens, a private beach, and a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean. It is now one of America’s largest National Historic Landmarks and one of the most haunted mansions in Rhode Island.
It is said to be haunted by the ghost of Alice Vanderbilt and her ghost has been seen regularly in the mansion since her death in 1934.
The description of her ghost is always the same and fits how she would have looked prior to her death.
The family living there now says that she has been a near-constant presence, but they will not allow any investigators access as they know who she is and do not wish to disturb her. It is her home every bit as much as it is theirs.
