Newport Historical Society Business Members

NHS business membership is a marketing investment with the opportunity to promote and enhance the brand and goodwill of your business to an educated, affluent demographic. You will associate your business with outstanding community history, education and preservation, reaching our members, donors, friends, program participants, online users and Museum visitors. Of particular note, the NHS offers opportunities to place logos and links for your firm on its website, which experienced over 25,000 unique visitors in 2010, visitation which continues to grow (up this year 37% so far). You also receive advertising space in Newport History, the biannual publication of the Historical Society, which reaches over 1,000 individuals, most of whom reside in Newport County. With special opportunities to be determined with each season’s events, exhibits and programs, we can also create customized benefits packages to suit your needs.
