Vinland presents a contrast in almost every respect to the historicism of its stately neighbors Ochre Court and The Breakers. Unlike those
In 1877, Catherine Wolfe's brother, Pierre Lorillard, had commissioned the same Boston firm to design the original Breakers, which burned down in 1892.

All the Vinland buildings are now owned by Salve Regina University.
