- ByNewport, RI | DiscoverNewport.orgItinerary For History Buffs in NewportNearly 400 years of downright monumental history comprise this small but fierce Classic Coast of ours. Since 1639 when a group of English settlers separated from the settlement in Portsmouth and planted roots on the southern side of our island, dubbing it a haven of religious freedom and tolerance; to 1776 when Major John Handy read the Declaration of Independence on the steps of the Old Colony House in Washington Square (now the fourth oldest statehouse still standing in the country); to 1781 when General Rochambeau and 5,500 French troops landed in Newport to subsequently overthrow the British - you could say we have a history of making waves. Newport was one of America's five leading seaports during Colonial times. It's where America's wealthiest built their grand "summer cottages" during the Gilded Age in the turn of the 20th century; Where John F. Kennedy and Jackie Onassis spent their summers, and eventually said I do to forever together in 1953. It's where Bob Dylan went electric for the first time on the stage of Newport Folk Festival in 1965. It's where Americans mourned the loss of the renowned America's Cup to the Australians in 1983. This city is constantly in motion, but you better believe we still hold true to our history. You can still walk these cobblestone streets and pass by the oldest synagogue in the country, or step foot in America's oldest tavern. When you're here, it's 1639 and 1892 and 2019.
