The Newport Tower’s Place in Early Newport

The Newport Tower once had a full view of Newport Harbor, as shown in this early illustration. Viewed from the Tower, the sunset occurred at 302 degrees directly behind the steeple of Trinity Church on the Summer Solstice. The steeple is no longer visible today, due to houses around the park.
