This "cottage" has such a great history, as do all of the mansions in Newport. But Alva Vanderbilt really was something. From securing the house as an outright gift from her husband at the age of 39, to her divorce, marrying off her daughter to an English Duke, marrying her husband's pal with another house down the road, the Chinese tea House out back, and then the Suffrage movement! Because why not. Very different from some of the other party houses down the road.
