Grand Buildings

Washington Square is home to grand buildings, each a character in its own right.
With elegant houses lining the streets around the square, the Colony House at its eastern end and the Brick Market at its western end, the original parade ground became an urban space of civic splendor and public festivity.

This project is made possible by the generous support of Elizabeth "Lisette" Prince and the Buchanan Burnham Endowment for Visiting Scholars.  All images are from the collections of the Newport Historical Society unless otherwise noted.
