IYRS to christen new location

Posted on

The International Yacht Restoration School next month will celebrate the official opening of the newly restored 1831 Aquidneck Mill building in Newport, R.I.

Originally built for textile manufacturing, the mill has been repurposed to house expansion space for IYRS, including a maritime research library, the school’s new visitor center and lease space for 12 companies that have relocated to the Lower Thames Street neighborhood.

“There are wonderfully layered benefits to this restored mill,” said Terry Nathan, president of IYRS, in a statement. “The mill provides much-needed space for additional school growth, as well as a separate income component associated with tenants. It also satisfies the long-term mission of the school to preserve the entire historic campus, and what a beautiful improvement to the quality of life in this neighborhood.”

The May 14 ceremony begins at 11 a.m. Ceremonies will be followed by an open house that runs until 2 p.m. so members of the public can tour the historic building, which is one of only two surviving mills in Newport.
