Setting the tone for a world-renowned avenue

Due to its distinctive double-decker porch and its proximity to the street, 29 Bellevue Avenue has unmistakable impact on the beauty of a world-renowned avenue.

The 29 Bellevue Avenue Foundation enables individuals and foundations to provide meaningful financial support in the form of tax-deductible contributions to defray the costs of specific maintenance and permitted improvement projects which will surely be needed in the decades to come.

The needs and challenges of preserving 29 Bellevue Avenue will continue indefinitely.

A Renewal Project: After 175 years of navigating the demands of Mother Nature, and providing refuge and a rich environment for many generations of notable Newporters to engage in literary and social intercourse, the wonderfully warm and welcoming 1841 Greek Revival-style house, located at 29 Bellevue Avenue, found itself in dire need of some tender loving care.

In 2019, after carefully evaluating and determining the necessary scope of work, the custodians of this architectural lady boldly embarked their constituents on a daunting and costly renewal of the building’s structural foundation, skeletal framework, and the exterior envelope.

Today we are collectively the fortunate beneficiaries of a sound and successfully rehabilitated gem with its distinctive edifice and grounds boasting a much larger footprint, literally and figuratively, than ​its modest beginnings.

Our goal is to raise $1 million by 2030.

The Foundation welcomes ongoing support at any level.
