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 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.
