The area that would become present day Newport was first settled as the community of Kaposia in 1839. By 1843, the name was changed to Red Rock, and a bit to its south sprang the settlement of Newport. Each of these settlements were distinct, with different industries and other features, though both saw a boom in growth in the late 1800s and early 1900s when the Farmer’s Terminal State Bank and the Farmer’s Terminal Meat Packing Company moved into the area. Eventually, the two communities merged into one, creating the city we know today.
