Newport, Rhode Island is home to more 18th-century buildings than any other city in America, and the preservation of many of these historic properties is due to the visionary contribution of Doris Duke. The Newport Restoration Foundation was created in 1968, based on the urgent need to save the city’s rapidly disappearing 18th-century architecture. The scale of the preservation work undertaken by Duke and NRF was extraordinary, saving more than 80 buildings in a targeted approach that resulted in seeding the restoration of two Newport neighborhoods, The Point and Historic Hill. After 50 years as an organization, NRF continues to own over 70 restored houses, meticulously maintained as rental properties representing a remarkable collection of early Rhode Island architecture.
