America's Castles: Marblehouse and The Breakers

How many weeks was Marblehouse used a year?


What was the “one reason” Newport houses were built?


Where did a lot of the objects come from (or were based on) that were used to decorate Marblehouse ?


WHY do you think having objects from this location was important?


In The Breakers , name 3 rooms that were each built just for one activity?


Why do you think that people don't build houses like Marblehead or The Breakers anymore?


Would you want to live in either of these buildings? WHY or WHY NOT?
