Newport and Bristol are two of the historic focal points of America's colonial past. Their locations on Narragansett Bay made for prosperous economies based on trade and manufacture - resulting in beautiful homes, houses of worship and commercial buildings. Today, the East Bay region contains much of the nation's largest concentration of original colonial period homes and structures offering visitors rich stories from the American past.
