Weekends With Yankee

Icons Of New England

Season 1, Episode 6 of 13

Think of New England icons, and you probably imagine covered bridges, stone walls, church steeples, and lighthouses. In today's episode, we visit three less typical but equally iconic treasures, beginning with the Elms in Newport, Rhode Island, where we get a behind-the-scenes tour from this mansion's caretaker of more than 30 years. Then we visit the Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut, Phillip Johnson's private residence that forever changed architecture in America. Last but not least is our trip to Olneyville New York System, a Providence, Rhode Island, restaurant where the Stevens family has been serving up their signature Coney Island-style wieners to four generations of customers. That's all coming up next on Weekends with Yankee.
