"The Old Stone Mill" Top 5 Page for this destination Newport Favorite Tip by Geoff_Wright

Newport General: 51 reviews and 66 photos


Favorite thing: The Old Stone Mill or Tower is a prominient landmark in Newport's Touro Park. This structure has been the subject of centuries of debate over its origins. The two most popualr theories are that it was constructed by Benedict Arnold in the 1600s as a windmill similar to one in his birthplace, Chesterton, England; or that it was constructed by ancient Norse visitors.

At the time of taking the photograph, I was more interested in the 'modern' people!
