About Us

Newport Historical Society

Since 1854, the Newport Historical Society has collected and preserved five centuries of history and continues to document Newport’s unique contribution to our national narrative. The mission of NHS is also to chronicle and interpret this history for a broad audience, so that knowledge of our past will contribute to a deeper understanding of the present and better preparation for the future.  For more information, visit www.newporthistory.org.

From the Collections

Recently, the Newport Historical Society acquired a page from a letter book belonging to William Ellery, Newport’s signer of the Declaration of Independence. The page has been returned to its original location in the letter book at NHS, after having been missing for decades.
