The Preservation Society of Newport County welcomes teachers and students to its historic properties. Over two centuries of American history, art, and cultural development are represented in the PSNC’s collection of properties, which makes Newport an ideal learning laboratory for students! Through teacher resources, including the new Edible Schoolyard at Green Animals, the Preservation Society encourages students to learn by experiencing our properties first hand.
