Newport Cemeteries


What is it about cemeteries that draw me in to take a look?

In our walk around Newport we came upon three.

In this park was one dedicated to Irish immigrants. Despite being founded on religious liberty, the colony was not welcoming to Catholics at first.

There was another dedicated to early colonial Jews who made their home in Newport.  They were welcomed before Catholics were.

The last one we spied surrounded this church.

It definitely was a day without sun on the two days we explored Newport, Rhode Island. Fortunately the rain stopped once we had arrived.
