Welcome to Newport Signs


We are proud to be responsible for the planting and maintaining of the four “Welcome to Newport” signs that can be seen approaching our community. Throughout the seasons we hope to make you smile when entering the Sunshine Town. If you are coming from Sunapee, Claremont, Croydon or Goshen be sure to keep your eyes open for them!

Wilmarth Place Railroad Crossing


In 2011, Kathan Gardens and JCB Designscapes assumed the maintenance and beautification of the historic Wilmarth Place on main street in Newport between MJ Harrington’s and Newport Fitness. We hope to enhance the beauty and charm of our downtown area with this project, and we hope that you will enjoy it with us.


We believe it is important to support our local community. In 2017, we proudly donated merchandise, money, and purchased advertising in support of the following organizations. Please join us in giving as generously as you can.
