1881 Newport City Directory, Rhode Island, 

NOTE: These scans are provided by me, Susan White Pieroth, for your personal genealogy and history research. You may not copy them to another website (links are fine) or publish them in a book or on a CD for distribution of any kind. If you think I might make an exception, please contact me. I do not sell prints or images on a CD. Text and images copyrighted 2020 by Susan Carter White Pieroth.

The images can be viewed in three sizes, either individually or as a slide show. They have been divided into two sections to make the thumbnail page more manageable. Use the Index images below to find specific sections, other than the general directory listings.

The Directory (Scanned) contains 294, but pages 259 to 264 are deliberately missing.
The images you save will have the correct page numbers, not the number at the side of each image page.

Left: The spine of the directory showing the correct date of 1881- 82.

Above: The index page showing the date of 1884. This is the only place that date appears. Apparently the publisher wanted to sell it past the original publication date. The X through 4 and note are mine and not on the original.

NOTE: addresses are before the changes were made to Newport street numbers in 1882. See the directory page for more information.
Right: Dates when names were added and removed from the directory - all 1881 - not 1884.
