Newport Flower Show at Rosecliff
The Newport Flower Show is pleased to celebrate its 22nd year as America�s premier summer flower show. The show takes place at Rosecliff, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The show features themed floral exhibits, horticultural entries, garden designs, photography, and children�s programs.

Rosecliff, home of Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs was modeled after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. After the house was completed in 1902, at a reported cost of $2.5 million, Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here, including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini.

Events are held outdoors as well as special exhibits indoors. Enjoy shopping at the Gardeners Marketplace and Oceanside Boutiques on front and back lawn of Rosecliff.

The Elms
The Elms was the summer residence of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Julius Berwind of Philadelphia and New York. Mr. Berwind made his fortune in the Pennsylvania coal industry. In 1898, the Berwinds engaged Philadelphia architect Horace Trumbauer to design a house modeled after the mid-18th century French chateau d'Asnieres (c.1750) outside Paris. Construction of The Elms was completed in 1901 at a cost reported at approximately $1.4 million. The interiors and furnishings were designed by Allard and Sons of Paris and were the setting for the Berwinds' collection of Renaissance ceramics, 18th century French and Venetian paintings, and Oriental jades.

The elaborate Classical Revival gardens on the grounds were developed between 1907 and 1914. They include terraces displaying marble and bronze sculpture, a park of fine specimen trees and a lavish lower garden featuring marble pavilions, fountains, a sunken garden and carriage house and garage. These gardens were recently restored.
