The Newport Artillery Company maintains a museum within its historic armory. This museum houses an extensive collection of military uniforms from over 50 different nations, as well as several artillery pieces, including four bronze cannons cast for the state of Rhode Island by Paul Revere in 1798. Visitors can also view a portrait of President George Washington by Jane Stuart and a letter from President Washington to the Newport Artillery Company.
The Newport Artillery Company's armory building is a notable landmark in Newport. Located at 23 Clarke Street, the stone and brick structure was constructed in 1835 in the Greek Revival style. The armory was extended about 50 feet west around 1875 and was rebuilt after a fire in 1906, which added a second story. The building's architecture and history make it a point of interest for visitors.
The armory of the Newport Artillery Company is not just a historic building, but also a recognized historic place. In 1972, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This recognition underscores the armory's significance in American history and its value as a cultural heritage site.
