Historic Sites

The Newport Historical Society owns and interprets three historic sites and manages a fourth: The Wanton-Lyman-Hazard House (ca. 1670s), the Great Friends Meeting House (1699), the Seventh Day Baptist Meeting House (1730), and the Newport Colony House (1739). These are open for tours and are integrated into the Society's walking tours and school programs.
