History

History

From its infancy during the Revolutionary War to its present day technology, the United States Navy has been a part of Narragansett Bay. Until the last two decades of the 19th century, a sailor learned most of his trade on the job. In the 1880s, a new concept of shore-based training for officers and enlisted personnel was developed, and the Navy turned to Narragansett Bay. By 1913, the Navy had constructed a Naval Hospital on the mainland of Aquidneck Island.

Newport is the Navy’s premier site for training officers, officer candidates, senior enlisted personnel and midshipman candidates, as well as conducting advanced undersea warfare and development systems. Naval Station Newport’s mission is to fulfill the diverse requirements of its tenant commands by providing the facilities and infrastructure that are essential to their optimum performance.

Naval personnel assigned to Newport arrive from all parts of the United States and many free nations of the world. The naval installation mirrors a miniature America, flavored with an international touch. The Navy’s economic impact in Rhode Island is legendary. For many years, it was the state’s largest single employer, both in terms of personnel and payroll. Today, it is still the largest single employer in Newport County and third overall in the state.

Newport is home to the Navy’s most prestigious educational institution, the Naval War College. As the oldest institution in continuous existence anywhere in the world, the college is organized to pursue and integrate both academic and research endeavors. Each year, over 500 outstanding mid-career level officers of the Navy, all other US services, civilian federal agencies and international naval officers come here to pursue a rigorous ten month course of post-graduate studies following in the footsteps of such notable War College graduates as ADM Chester Nimitz, Rear ADM Alan Shepard, first American in space, ADM Robert Fallon, Commander, US Central Command and others.

The Naval Station Newport homepage, as well as many of the command web sites, have more detailed information on the extensive naval history of our area.
