Living in Middletown, RI

Newport County has a rich history dating back to the 17th century. The first English settlers came to Aquidneck Island in 1639. Led by Anne Hutchinson, they were driven out of Boston for challenging the foundations of Puritanism. Native tribes had been living in the area for at least 5,000 years prior to white settlement, which could be seen in the land management and fishing practices of the land. Over hundreds of years, residents built the foundation for a thriving community, including one of the leading ports in colonial North America. The city was very important during the American Revolution, as residents here had a long history of disapproval of British leadership. Today, Middletown is still home to many historical sites that celebrate the city's resilience.
