Each year the NHS offers a broad array of educational programs for the local community, including school field trips, an Antiques Show, walking tours of Newport’s historic neighborhoods, workshops, lectures, and performances.

The Society is located in the heart of the Newport National Historical Landmark District, and collaborates with organizations throughout the region to understand and interpret the rich and complex history of the area.
