AAA Editor Notes
The Whitehorne House, 416 Thames St., is Newport's only Federal-style mansion open to the public. It houses a stunning collection of 18th- and early 19th-century Newport and Rhode Island furniture, including pieces by Goddard and Townsend, as well as other early decorative arts by regional craftspeople. A period garden is behind the house.
