THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY
APC 61. E.D. Morgan, Brenton's Cove. Started out a the summer estate of E.D. Morgan and later of Marion Eppley, a scientist. Then was purchased by Felix de Weldon who sold it to a lawyer in the late 20th century. Now called "Beacon Rock." "In Newport's Golden Age Newporters even went to church in a memorable manner. The box pews of old Trinity were upholstered in the same colors as the liveries of the worshiper, with the Hon. Edwin Morgan's pew taking first honors. In the rear of this, which was known as the Morgan Parlor Car and was sumptuously swathed in crimson damask, were two large armchairs. These were for Mr. and Mrs. Morgan. In front were a trio of tastefully tasestried and well-oiled swivel chairs-- these, of course, for the Morgan children, who, when affected by the tedium of worship, could twist and turn to their hearts' content." From "The Last Resort" by Cleveland Amory.
