Subscribe to History

Thank you for visiting the NHS’s membership page! If you are here to determine whether it is time for you to renew your subscription to history with the Newport Historical Society, check your email for a message from hrockwood@newporthistorical.org. We are sending out renewal letters by email, although they may have landed in your email’s spam or promotion folder: Please check your email first, and if you find no emails from that address, contact Heather Rockwood at the email above to find out more about your membership and how to renew. If you’d like, you can add Heather’s email address, or newporthistory.org, to your safe senders list in your email account.

If you go ahead and renew early, we’ll give you the extra time added on to your membership!
