The casino was built between 1879 -1881 as a social center for Newport. Back in the day entrance to the casino was gained both by membership and by purchase of a daily pass.
The casino is actually a complex of buildings and open spaces.
Today it is home to the National Tennis Hall of Fame, the National Tennis Club,
a Stanford White designed auditorium used by Salve Regina University,
and one of eight court tennis courts in the country.
The exterior spaces (Originally for archery, croquet, and lawn tennis) are as lovely as the interior spaces.
