Newport is a census-designated place (CDP) comprising the primary village and surrounding rural land in the town of Newport in Sullivan County, New Hampshire, United States. The population of the CDP was 4,769 at the 2010 census,[1] out of 6,507 people in the entire town of Newport.


The CDP is in the eastern part of the town of Newport, with the village of Newport in the center of the CDP at the junction of the Sugar River with its South Branch. The CDP extends north to the Croydon town line and east to the Sunapee town line. From the Croydon line, the CDP border follows the North Branch of the Sugar River and then the main stem of the Sugar River southwest to a point just north of New Hampshire Routes 11 and 103 in Kellyville. The border proceeds east up an unnamed brook to Endicott Road, then follows the road south to Routes 11/103, which it follows east to Whitcher Road. The CDP border runs south on Whitcher Road, east on Bascom Road, and south on Unity Road to a tributary of Spring Brook, then follows Spring Brook east to the South Branch of the Sugar River. The border follows the South Branch north to Pollards Mill Road, then follows Breakneck Road, New Hampshire Route 10, the south end of Old Goshen Road, Blaisdell Road, East Mountain Road, Schoolhouse Road, and Bradford Road east to the Sunapee town line. The CDP runs north along the town line to Maple Street south of Wendell, then turns west on an abandoned railroad line and a power line to the Sugar River. Turning east again, the border follows the river upstream to Long Pond Brook, where it turns north, follows Routes 11/103 briefly, then takes Sand Hill Road north back to the Croydon line.[2]

New Hampshire Route 10 is Newport's Main Street, leading north 10 miles (16 km) to Interstate 89 in Grantham and south 35 miles (56 km) to Keene. Routes 11/103 lead west together 9 miles (14 km) to Claremont. The two highways lead east out of town as Sunapee Street, splitting 3 miles (5 km) east of the center of Newport in the village of Wendell. Route 11 leads northeast 5.5 miles (8.9 km) from Newport to Sunapee village, while Route 103 leads southeast 9.5 miles (15.3 km) to Newbury Harbor on Lake Sunapee.
