The goal of the Newport Revitalization and Preservation Society (NRPS) is to blend Newport's rich and full past with the present as we begin the 21st century. We engage in projects to better the community and to preserve the history of our town.
Newport is nestled between the Juniata River and gently rolling hills. Within this landscape commuters, farmers, artists, artisans, and business people live, work, and enjoy life. Local activities reflect this blend. Newport is home to the Little Buffalo Festival of the Arts, Perry County Council of the Arts, the Perry County Fair, Little Buffalo State Park, the Oliver Grange, and an active 4H Club.
