Newport has been the new home of many generations of immigrants over the decades. In the mid-1880s, a large number of Irish immigrants came to the city to help build Fort Adams. In that same period, Italian and Eastern European immigrants came to the city to help staff the growing leisure economy of the city. Additionally, Newport was the seasonal home of summer migrants who came from other states to staff summer businesses and wealthy resorts. Today, Newport continues to be a vibrant, diverse and ever-growing city that welcomes everyone to start a life here.
