Maritime Center

The City of Newport Maritime Center was opened in May 2012 in the Armory building located at 365 Thames Street. The extensive rehabilitation was made possible through a Boating Infrastructure Grant funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, cash contribution from the City of Newport, Newport County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Newport Restoration Foundation and Bowen’s Wharf Company.
