architecture survive intact thanks to thoughtful owners and contemporary champions of historic architecture including heiress Doris Duke. Ms. Duke founded the Newport Restoration Foundation in 1968 to protect Newport's historic properties. Since then, the non-profit has saved and restored 83 antique buildings. 71 are lovely Colonial homes now rented back to Newport residents keeping them viable for future generations. Duke not only bought these homes but often moved them before painstakingly restoring them to near original condition adding a few modern conveniences like heat and hot water.It is said that the craftsmen who put these old buildings back together mined parts from other old buildings salvaging hand forged hardware, iron hinges, door latches, bulls eye glass and other antique materials from abandoned period homes. Everything about these homes is authentic.
Some wonderful examples of 17th and 18th century Colonial architecture are open to the public, but most are still in private hands. Many homes in Historic Hill and The Point are historic homes. These neighborhoods are centrally located in Newport close to all the amenities you need including the many shops and restaurants lining Thames Street. The Newport Restoration Foundation offers guided historic tours and you can learn about everything from Colonial Newport right up to the Gilded age, when the famous Newport mansions were constructed.
