TAKE THE TIME TO WALK our Year Round walk at Little Buffalo State Park that same day. The Little Buffalo Festival, a Perry County Arts Festival event, is from noon to dusk and features food, crafts, and entertainment.


Billy Cox (Wm. Richard Cox), born in Newport on August 29, 1919, was a Major League baseball third baseman. He was signed as an amateur free agent by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1940. He was the third baseman of a stellar Brooklyn Dodgers infield of the 1950s that included Gil Hodges, Jackie Robinson, and PeeWee Reese. He played 7 seasons with the Dodgers that included 3 NL Championships. He is featured in the book The Boys of Summer by Roger Kahn (1971) and Tales from the Dodgers Dugout by Carl Erskine (2004). He played for the Pirates in 1941, 1946-47, the Dodgers from 1948-1954, and finally with the Orioles in 1955. The youth baseball park on N. 2nd St. is named after him. He is buried in the Newport Cemetery.

Canal Days is held to celebrate Newport’s glory days. In 1829 the Juniata branch of the canal was completed. It went through Newport and brought many businesses to the area. In 1840 Newport was incorporated as a borough. By 1849 the railroad also passed through Newport with more industry coming to our area. This was when the main structures on the square were erected. Some of the lovely residences were constructed at that time. The Newport Revitalization and Preservation Society (NRPS) is currently working on improvements to the Veterans Memorial Park. Come enjoy the activities in Newport and Little Buffalo State Park that are sure to make your day entertaining and memorable.
