Newport, RI is packed with historic buildings and the Redwood Library is one of the most outstanding examples. Founded in 1747 by Abraham Redwood the library thrives as one of the archives of American history and architecture.
There is an art gallery, a beautiful reading room and the Harrison room with its priceless American portraiture collection, all open to the public. One can also sign up for tours.
This is the perfect place to go if you have maxed out on the Gilded Age mansions and now need a little peace and quiet.
