About the Museum of Newport Irish History
Founded in 1996, the Museum of Newport Irish History is a non-profit, membership-driven organization, 800-strong. The volunteer-run organization sponsors numerous educational, cultural and social events throughout the year, including the popular Michael F. Crowley Lecture Series, now in its 18th season. In addition to operating an Interpretive Center on Lower Thames Street, the organization restored and maintains the Barney Street Cemetery at the corner of Barney and Mt. Vernon Street, steps from Washington Square. It is the final resting place of many of Newport’s earliest Irish residents and was the cemetery founded to support Rhode Island’s first Roman Catholic parish, the forerunner of the current St. Mary’s Church on Spring Street.
