Sobre Nós

The Preservation Society of Newport County is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1945 to preserve and protect the architectural heritage of Newport County, Rhode Island. The Preservation Society’s collection of historic houses together with their landscapes, fine and decorative arts constitutes a unique cultural museum spanning the colonial period through the Gilded Age. Each house museum plays a significant role in the effort to preserve and interpret the evolution of Newport’s artistic, social, and cultural past, which reflects developments on the national level. The Preservation Society is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, a designation achieved by only six percent of American museums. The Preservation Society of Newport County is a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect, preserve, and present an exceptional collection of house museums and landscapes in one of the most historically intact cities in America. We hold in public trust the Newport Mansions, which are an integral part of the living fabric of Newport, Rhode Island. These sites exemplify three centuries of the finest achievements in American architecture, decorative arts, and landscape design spanning the Colonial era to the Gilded Age. Through our historic properties, educational programs, and related activities, we engage the public in the story of America’s vibrant cultural heritage. We seek to inspire and promote an appreciation of the value of preservation to enrich the lives of people everywhere.
