Executive Director
Newport, RI

Founded in 1854, the purpose of the Newport Historical Society is to collect, document and preserve Newport’s unique contribution to our national narrative over the course of five centuries. Our continuing mission is to chronicle, advocate for the importance of, and communicate this history to a broad audience, so that knowledge of our past will contribute to a deeper understanding of the present and better preparation for the future.

The Newport Historical Society (NHS) is a multi-faceted history-based institution with a public-facing orientation. NHS retains and preserves significant collections of artifacts, photographs, manuscripts and six historic properties. It develops and delivers a variety of educational programs — exhibits, tours, conferences, publications, research and digital formats — to transmit information and open dialogs with the public about history. Newport Historical Society’s collection materials span pre-colonial, colonial, American Revolution, and Gilded Age periods to the present.

NHS has completely modernized its headquarters and collections storage facility, moving many research and educational activities online (which made adjustment to the pandemic years swift and successful). The organization currently has 12 full-time staff, and the number of part-time staff varies seasonally. The NHS has 16 Board members and an operating budget of $1.2 million.

The salary range for this position is between $125,000 - $150,000 commensurate with experience. NHS offers a comprehensive benefits package, including but not limited to paid holidays, vacation, health insurance and FSA, as well as a retirement plan including employer contribution.

The Newport Historical Society is an Equal Opportunity Employer, complying with all applicable laws regarding equal employment opportunities for all qualified applicants and employees.
