Character In Abundance

The Elms | Newport Mansions

The Elms, the summer residence of Mr. & Mrs. Edward Berwind, who made their fortune in the PA coal mining industry (including the coal town of Windber, just outside Johnstown). Fascinating.

The Elms was designed by architect Horace Trumbauer for the coal baron Edward Julius Berwind, and was completed in 1901. Its design was copied from the Château d'Asnières in Asnières-sur-Seine, France.[3][4][5] The gardens and landscaping were created by C. H. Miller and E. W. Bowditch, working closely with Trumbauer.[6] The Elms has been designated a National Historic Landmark and today is open to the public.

The Elms: 1st & 2nd floor plan. I found this on Tyler Y. Hughes' board "My Newport." Thanks, Mr. Hughes! This and the picture of the cross hall popped up in time to be pinned with the rest of the Elms' photos. JC
