Our History

Newport Rifle Club is the oldest continuously operating rifle club in the United States of America.

The club was founded in 1876 by W. Milton Farrow, said to be the best rifle shot in America during the last quarter of the 19th Century. Winner of numerous long-distance competitions at home and abroad, Farrow authored a book, How I Became a Crack Shot and Hints to Beginners, which is still in print. He started Farrow Arms Co. to manufacture guns of his design, considered to be among the finest target rifles ever produced.
