According to Associated Press writer Michelle R. Smith, “If the Crawley family of ‘Downton Abbey’ were American, they'd summer at Newport.” As the well-known blueblood playground of the country’s elite during the Gilded Age, it is easy to picture Lord Grantham and his brood calling one of the famed Newport Mansions home.
