(WATCH) CBS Sunday Morning: A History Of The Newport, RI Landmarks

“Sunday Morning” host Charles Osgood explores two historic mansions from the scenic shores of Newport, Rhode Island: The Breakers, the world-famous, 70-room, Italian Renaissance-style palazzo built in 1895 by Cornelius Vanderbilt II; and the nearby Marble House, built by Cornelius’ younger brother, William. Each is a magnificent example of opulence from the Gilded Age.
