The site of the Newport Historic Town Spring is the former location of the freshwater spring around which the original settlement of Newport occurred and where subsequent events of historic significance were enacted.

The Newport Spring site is located at the corner of Touro and Spring Street in Newport on the former site of Coffey’s gas station. The design team, headed by L+A Landscape Architecture of Newport, RI will be facilitating a public planning process that will result in a master plan for the site.
