Charles F. McKim (1847-1909) was one of the founding partners of the architectural firm McKim, Mead and White formed in 1872. The firm gained prominence for their work during the Gilded Age. Among their notable works are the Rhode Island State House, Newport Casino, the Isaac Bell House and Rosecliff. In 1874, McKim compiled a portfolio of Newport houses, architectural elements, landmarks and furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries. These images provide a window into the American Colonial Revival style exemplified by McKim’s work.
