Newport, Rhode Island






Newport, founded in 1639, is famous for its natural seaside beauty and for the magnificent mansions and gardens built there by the industrial barons of America’s Gilded Age.


Newport was the playground of the wealthy from the 1880s to the early 20th century.


Newport also was host from 1930 to 1983 to the America’s Cup, the world’s premiere yachting regatta.


Newport was also a major center of pirate activity during the late 17th and early 18th centuries.


Until 1900, Newport was one of two capitals of Rhode Island, the other being Providence. Connecticut was the only other state to have more than one capital at one time.


Newport is known as the sailing capital of the United States.
