White Horse Tavern

By July 8, 2019Inside Rhody, RetroBlast

No building is believed to be more typical of colonial Newport than the White Horse Tavern, with its clapboard walls, gambrel roof and plain pediment doors bordering the sidewalk. Inside, its giant beams, small stairway against the chimney, tiny front hall and cavernous fireplaces are the very essence of 17thcentury American architecture.

The White Horse Tavern is the “oldest operating restaurant in the U.S.” and is acknowledged as the 10th oldest in the world in addition to being a National Historic Landmark, having served guests since 1673. View the full history of White Horse Tavern by clicking here.
