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. The gardens and landscaping were created by C. H. Miller and E. W. Bowditch, working closely with Trumbauer. 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
