When Grand Duke Boris, brother-in-law of the Czarina of of Russia, was a house guest of the owners of Ochre Court in the 1890s he exclaimed in wonder, "I have never dreamt of such luxury as I have seen in Newport!" Commissioned by Gilded Age banker and developer, Ogden Goelet, as his family’s summer residence, Ochre Court (1888-1892) is the first of a group of spectacular houses in the Grand Manner designed by Richard Morris Hunt, America’s foremost architect of the late nineteenth century.
