Preservation in Newport

For five decades, the Newport Restoration Foundation has preserved over eighty 18th- and 19th-century buildings on Aquidneck Island, representing one of the largest portfolios of historic architecture owned by a single organization in the United States.

Visit our Museums

At NRF's Museums you can see a one-of-a-kind personal collection of European and Asian art, enjoy one of the most dramatic oceanside landscapes in town, learn why Newport furniture was all the rage in the 18th-century, and enjoy 40 acres of historic greenspace in the middle of Aquidneck Island.

With the theme of Envision 2050, emphasis is placed on policies, programs, and projects that address the situation in the short-term (defined as 30 years). Presenters will share research, strategies, and case studies of real-world applications that will physically, socially, and economically transform the world as we adapt the world to sea level rise over the next few decades. This fourth iteration of Keeping History Above Water is a partnership of Flagler College, University of Florida, and the City of St. Augustine in collaboration with the Newport Restoration Foundation.
