The Malbone Trust the Owner of the Malbone Estate, a National Historic Landmark Gothic-style Castle is the oldest privately owned estate in Newport, situated on 17 acres Malbone once served as the country residence of Colonel Godfrey Malbone (1796-1862) of Virginia and Connecticut. Colonel Malbone made his fortune as a shipping merchant. Malbone had the foremost gardens in North America in the 1700 and 1800's. During his historic visit to Newport's Tuoro Synagogue in 1766, President George Washington dined at Malbone. In the course of a gala dinner party, a chimney fire reduced the house to a pile of sandstone rubble in 1766. In 1848 the house was rebuilt as the summer "villa in the country" for Mr. & Mrs. Jonathan Prescott Hall. Mr. Hall was an eminent New York Lawyer and descendant of two signors of the Declaration of Independence. In 1978 the L.G. Morris family descendants of Malbone bequeathed this landmark to the Preservation Society of Newport County. The J. H. Leach Family now enjoys the same distinction 150 years later of inhabiting this private paradise.
