THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY
APC 68. Residence of O.H.P. Belmont. Known today as Belcourt Castle. "Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont could not bear to have his horses under another roof; the ground floor of "Belcourt" was an all stable affair. Here, in stalls designed by Richard Hunt, with a tasteful barracks for a battery of grooms alongside, the Belmont horses had a change of equipment morning, afternoon and evening. For the night they were bedded down of pure white linen sheets with the Belmont crest embroidered on them. Above the stables, in the salon of "Belcourt," Belmont kept two stuffed horses, old favorites of his, which were mounted by stuffed riders in chain armor." * From "The Last Resort" by Cleveland Amory.
