Neighborhood Spotlight: The Fifth Ward Neighborhood, Newport, Rhode Island

One of the best known and most tight knit communities in Newport, Rhode Island, the Fifth Ward has deep roots in the City by the Sea. Dating back at least two centuries, this family-friendly neighborhood located on the southern edge of Newport Harbor was where many of the Irish laborers who built Fort Adams made their home, in addition to many Irish domestic workers who worked at the mansions and large estates.

Today, the neighborhood still boasts plenty of Irish pride, especially as the annual Newport St. Patrick’s Day Parade ends here, but it’s also a melting pot with people of many different backgrounds. The neighborhood is mostly made up of single family homes but you’ll also find duplexes, condos, apartments, and even one of the larger apartment complexes in Newport County here.
