Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm a journalist who's lived in the Historic Hill area of Newport for 6 years. I've been writing about Newport history & culture since moving here in 2014, & can share all the interesting hidden gems in this area that you won't find on any basic tour. We'll go off the beaten path to avoid tourist traps & discover something for everyone: Architecture, literary & cinematic history, mysteries, food, religion, science and more. Historic Hill is home to a large concentration of colorful, restored New England colonial homes that don't get as much attention as the Bellevue Avenue mansions, but are a must-see for visiting architecture enthusiasts. Whil we'll focus on these structures, I'll bring in plenty of historical info about the mansions as well for an alternative outdoor option to the indoor mansion tour.
