Historic Fort Adams is operated by the Fort Adams Trust a 501(c)(3) Non-profit with a mission to protect and promote the historic places and public spaces at the gateway to Narragansett Bay and Newport.  This includes directing and supporting the stabilization, maintenance and operation of Fort Adams as a public historic site.

Geo-caching, team building, a new 436’ zip line as well as guided and self-guided tours are just a few of the new ways you can experience the Fort.  The Fort Adams Trust is rapidly turning Historic Fort Adams into Newport Rhode Island’s Adventure Learning Destination. 

The Trust is developing Adventure learning activities designed to inspire you with action oriented events.  We hope you learn more during your visits about regional and military history and the Fort’s engineering and architecture.
