The Point Map & Guide
An authoritative map and guide for Newport's historically and architecturally significant 'Point' neighborhood. Pocket sized when folded, this guide includes notes on the history and architecture for the nearly 200 structures located in this neighborhood.
Located between America's Cup Blvd and the Goat Island causeway, this waterfront neighborhood was once home to many of Newport's Quaker residents, artisans, and craftsmen, including the famous Townsend and Goddard family cabinetmakers. The narrow streets laid out on a grid remain intact along with many homes from the 1700 and 1800's.
