As one of the most historically intact cities in North America, Newport has a cultural and architectural heritage of national significance. Discussing the political, religious, commercial, and artistic forces that have shaped Newport through the ages, this guide takes in stately Colonial squares and bustling wharves, picturesque Victorian villas and scenic drives, opulent Gilded Age palaces for the few, and electric streetcars for the many. A worthy tribute to Rhode Island's jewel, the book is illustrated with rare maps, paintings, and photographs.
