Calling all history buffs! Belcourt of Newport, the iconic mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, will be featured on an upcoming episode of the History Channel’s ‘American Pickers.’

A fresh take on antiquing, ‘American Pickers‘ follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they travel the country in search of artifacts to restore. They often find themselves in the most interesting and intriguing locations, scouring basements and the like for relics of yesterday. Who knows what amazing things they will uncover at Belcourt of Newport!


Belcourt of Newport, formerly Belcourt Castle, was purchased by Alex and Ani Founder and Creative Director, Carolyn Rafaelian, in 2012. It has been undergoing extensive renovations ever since to restore it to its former glory. It will eventually open as a tour house, art gallery, and event space.

Watch Belcourt of Newport on the History Channel’s American Pickers‘ coming this spring!
