Neighborhoods of Newport House Tour

The Neighborhoods of Newport House Tour has featured more than 90 of Newport’s most impressive private homes since its inception in 1995.

Funds raised from the House Tour allow the Parents Association to support the entire St. Michael’s community. This includes fun, student-centered events like the Fall Festival, Trunk or Treat and the Skating Party as well as critical initiatives like financial aid, professional development for teachers and classroom supplies. In addition, the proceeds from past tours have contributed towards the preservation of the beautiful historic home, the Mason House, that serves as the main building on the school’s campus.
