The York Street Local Historic District received this designation just this year. The district includes York and Columbia Streets from 6th to 11th and 120 structures in a variety of architectural styles. The historic designation will help to preserve the older buildings and increase the charm of the entire neighborhood. Residents are very engaged and excited about the energy and possibilities they see for this part of Newport.
