Extraordinary Venues for Your Historic Event

The Newport Historical Society has three properties that are potentially available for weddings or other similar events. The Colony House, the Great Friends Meeting House, and the Seventh Day Baptist Meeting House are all available for rental.

While all event venues claim to be special, Newport’s historic structures truly are. Because of the historical importance and significant age of the properties, particular care must be taken in choosing to host an event here. Careful, appropriate use of these unique sites ensure the continued preservation of the the buildings and their contents  while providing an authentic, historic setting for your event.
