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.

At NRF's museums you can experience the remarkable home and art collections of an unconventional heiress, 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.
