Julius Deming Perkins House (Bayberry Lodge)

-A A +A
Bayberry Lodge
c. 1898. Private way south off Mohegan Trail 600 feet east of junction with Lakeside Dr. (barely visible)

A shingled summer house with large, inset first-story porch overlooking the Atlantic, the Perkins House is one of the island's more sophisticated late-nineteenth-century summer houses, especially in contrast to its simpler shingled neighbors. Its late date—some twenty years after the earliest Shingle Style houses in Newport—suggests the conservative nature of building on the island.
