THE NEWPORT POSTCARD MUSEUM
APC 36. Ex-Governor Charles Warren Lippet's Residence "Norman Castle" Ledge Road. On some cards this home is also called " The Breakwater". Demolished. Lippet was born in Providence, RI October 8, 1846. He graduated from Brown University in 1865. A Republican, he served as Governor of Rhode Island from May of 1895 to May of 1897. His father (Henry) was also Governor of R.I.
I am not sure, but I beleive that these images show the fire that burnt out Lippets Castle in the late 1920's.
