The area is filled with buildings from the Colonial and Georgian Periods. Look for Brick Market Place and the Old Colony House--both brick buildings. These buildings from the early 1730s show influence of the Georgian style then being popularized in London by Sir Christopher Wren. The Old Colony House and the Brick Market stand at opposite ends of Washington Square, then known as the Parade, and were meant to make it the kind of dignified public space found in English cities of the period.

Visit Bannister's Wharf
During the Georgian Period, the Wharf John Bannister built was the social and commercial lifeline to Newport, the connector between an active harbor and an enterprising, young town. Today it is home to numerous boutique stores and several restaurants, and is still a bustling center in Newport. Much of Newport's fortune was made from Rum so enjoy a "Dark & Stormy" rum drink at the Clarke Cooke House in Bannister's Wharf.
