Newport Architectural Forum
Sat May 25, 2019 at 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Newport is a treasure trove of important architecture from the time of the earliest European settlement of North America to the present day. Particularly through the end of the nineteenth century it is where some of the most ground breaking architecture was being done by the most important architects of the time.
This vast and irreplaceable portfolio is managed not just by the city or by a single institution, but by a large and varied group of organizations, individuals and companies. Together this heritage is both what Newport is best known for worldwide and also a prime attraction that
draws visitors as an essential economic driver for the community.
On May 25, 2019 various organizations within the Newport community are coming together to celebrate this vast and rich architectural heritage of The Point neighborhood of Newport, Rhode Island. This one day symposium will include lectures by scholars, lunch and visits to some of these important buildings which play such a central place in the evolution of architecture in America from Colonial Era to the present day.
