THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY

APC 37. Ochre Court. Residence of Mrs. Ogden Golet. Owned by Salve Regina University and serves as an administration building with receptions rooms. "A striking example of cottage clearance occurred in 1946 when Robert Goelet offered his hundred room "Ochre Court" to his daughter at Vassar; the latter turned it down with the statement that even the thought of living there "oppressed" her. Finally in 1947 Goelet gave up and delivered the cottage to the Roman Catholic Church for a girl's college." {from "The Last Resort" by Cleveland Amory.}
