Designed by Richard Munday and completed in 1741, the building became the meeting place for the colonial legislature.  From independence through the occupation of the Rhode Island State House in 1901, the state assembly alternated its sessions between this building and the Old State House in Providence.  The building later served as the Newport County Courthouse until 1926.

The building is a National Historic Landmark.
