houses of worship tours

Newport was settled on the principles of religious freedom, welcoming groups from myriad faiths including early congregations of Quakers and Huguenots, Christians, Baptists and Jews as far back as the 1600s. Their historic houses of faith are extraordinary symbols of American freedom and architecture. Many are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

See these special places, including Touro Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in America (1763); Trinity Church (1726), St. Mary’s Church (dedicated in 1852 and best known as the place where John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier were married) and the United Congregational Church (built in 1857 and best known for its John La Farge-designed sanctuary, stained glass windows and murals).
