Whitehall, the home of the great early modern philosopher George Berkeley from 1729-1731, is set on the remnants of a seventeenth century farm five miles from downtown Newport. Bishop Berkeley enlarged the original dwelling to a country manor house in 1729. He chose the Palladian style for its prominent double front door, making it one of the first vernacular buildings in America to use such a detail.
