For 100 years Seamen’s has been a gathering place for the Newport community and visitors. Seamen’s hosts a monthly evening meal on the 3rd Wednesday of each month as well as a special Thanksgiving Day Dinner and Christmas Day brunch.
During the winter months, Seamen’s serves as the only emergency overnight warming center in the state. This past winter, over 55 people were sheltered during 11 dangerously cold evenings.
Amenities for mariners and visitors include showers (7-9am), laundry facilities, a public computer, free wifi and mail pick up.
The community is invited to enjoy Seamen’s lovely spaces: the cozy Henry J. Anderson Maritime Library, historic Chapel of the Sea and peaceful Memorial Garden.
