Rediscovering Newport’s Legacy: Join our Movement to Document Newport’s Lost Icons from Days Gone By

Last updated:

Can you lend us a hand? Reflecting on our post from yesterday about Newport, RI icons from days gone by, we stumbled upon an interesting discovery. Numerous iconic spots in our town have vanished without leaving a digital trace, and we aim to change that.

We’ve started compiling a list of these forgotten places and are reaching out for your support. Do you have any photos that we could include? Are there additional locations you think should be on our list?

This project will take some time, and we’re going to need a lot of help. Please share this with your local friends, and let’s create something meaningful together for our community!

If you’re able to contribute, kindly reach out to us at newportbuzzphotos@gmail.com
