In 1906 this house became the home of J. Thomas Newsome (1872-1942) and his wife Mary. A lawyer, churchman and newspaper editor, Newsome was an early advocate for Huntington High School and also formed the Colored Voters League of Warwick County. He was Newport News' first black lawyer to practice before the Virginia Supreme Court. Newsome House, built in 1899, was established as a memorial to his many contributions to this community in 1983.
