Newport’s Native History
Aquidneck Island’s history as a summer resort begins long before the Gilded Age. As archaeological deposits confirm, for hundreds of years prior to contact with Europeans, groups of Native Americans came to Newport to enjoy the fruits of the sea in the summertime. In fact, the first streets of Newport actually began as Native American paths and Spring Street itself gets its name from a freshwater spring that had been used by the local indigenous peoples for centuries. Come learn about the Native American archaeology literally right under your feet!
