5th Annual Architectural Symposium: Richard Morris Hunt - America's Architect

Do not miss the opportunity to examine Hunt and his influence on Newport’s landscape. A native of Brattleboro, Vermont, Hunt became America’s preeminent architect in the nineteenth century. After studying at the   École des Beaux-Arts   in Paris, Hunt’s prolific career included founding the first American architectural school in New York and co-founding the   American Institute of Architects  . He changed the perception of architects and insisted that they be viewed as professionals along with doctors and lawyers. His work included residences, churches, public and commercial structures from New York to North Carolina to Illinois. The largest concentration of Hunt buildings are in Newport, Rhode Island, and include the Travers Block, Ochre Court, and The Breakers. In 1895, on his way from Boston to North Carolina, Hunt stopped in Newport after contracting pneumonia. He died shortly thereafter and is buried in Island Cemetery in Newport.
