Location

Newport, Rhode Island, United States

The Point is located just north of the Goat Island Causeway and looks much like it did 200 years ago, thanks to the preservation efforts of Doris Duke and The Newport Restoration Foundation. Doris saved 50+ historic homes from the wrecking ball in the 1960s, preserving what would become known as the largest collection of colonial-era homes in the United States. This one-of-a-kind peek into America's history is comprised of small streets and tightly-packed houses with postage-stamp backyards that hide incredible secret gardens and hand-laid brick walkways. Look closer as you walk by and see the hand-forged nails used to attach the wood siding to the front of the house. At the time of construction, siding was a labor-intensive undertaking when building a home in Newport, and oftentimes you will only see the front of the house facing the street with painted siding. Inexpensive shingles cover the remainder of the home and help keep out the elements. Everything you see was crafted entirely by hand. The main street along the harbor front leading up to the base of the Newport Bridge is Washington Street. Besides the incredible views of Goat Island, Newport Harbor, and the Newport Bridge, the homes that line the waterfront are spectacular reminders of Newport's inherent wealth and a tribute to its artisans and craftsmen. Elaborately detailed homes reveal the fortunes of those who lived there centuries ago, reeling from the incredible profits made as sea traders and an important piece of the trans-Atlantic slave trade for many years. The two other main streets that make up the Point are 2nd and 3rd Street, which run parallel to Washington Street, creating a grid of some 30 small blocks. Take a few hours and walk slowly and deliberately down these streets, many of which are named after trees in the Quaker tradition.

It really does make for an amazing early morning walk, coffee in hand. Or visit at night with the gas-lit street lanterns, sure to invoke a feeling of a time gone by. Either way, just make time to visit, and surround yourself in history for a while on your next vacation to Newport.
