This venue was constructed in 1898 as one of the Carnegie Public Libraries. The building’s original name, Newport Public Library, is still etched into the stone above the front door. This historic landmark has been recently restored to host weddings and events in full historic elegance. The Italian Renaissance architecture compliments the antique-style furniture found throughout the venue’s rooms.

Gorgeous Venue with Excellent People!!!
Our wedding at the Carnegie was absolutely gorgeous and we are so appreciative to Kim, Peggy, and Jenna for everything they did to make that happen. Their eye for detail from the very beginning of the planning process was so helpful to us, and they were so kind and patient as they helped us consider every detail. Kim thought of everything - from how to organize the tables and decorations to creating a memorial to one of our parents who had recently passed away. Jenna sat down on the floor in the back of the ballroom and played with toddler-ring-bearer who was running around during the ceremony so that everyone else could focus on the bride and groom - I mean, that is amazing - where else is there someone who would do that and do it well?! And Peggy was a rock throughout the entire wedding weekend - from organizing all the vendors to carrying out every one of our detailed requests. She even helped several impaired, elderly relatives find their way to their hotels late at night. After the wedding, my parents said that the best decision we made was to go with the venue that had such attentive, professional people working at it, and we couldn't agree more. It is such a gorgeous space with top-of-the-line service! In short, excellent value for the money. Thank you all for helping us make our wedding so beautiful!Sent on 06/11/2019

We cannot say enough great things about Carnegie Hall. First of all, the building itself is gorgeous, and it's amazing to have the whole building to yourself to be able to keep everything centralized. We felt like we were in great hands throughout the process, and they made everything so easy for us. Kim was fantastic, anticipated our needs, and made sure our day was perfect. We even went as far as having the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner there as well, just because it was so easy! Highly recommend anyone who wants a beautiful old building near downtown!Sent on 01/15/2019

Carnegie Hall Newport is a gorgeous historical venue! It is very intimate, clean, romantic, and absolutely beautiful. It was the perfect place to host a wedding shower.Sent on 09/20/2018
Peggy was especially amazing! From the beginning (nearly a year in advance!), Peggy was extremely helpful. She answered our emails quickly, she let us view the building twice, and on the day of the event, was there early to help us with set up and took the time after the party to answer questions about the building, its history, and its functions now. My friends and I agreed that if we had to do it over again, we would definitely choose Carnegie Hall for our weddings!
