Dowdle Folk Art's Newport RI 500-Piece Puzzle Takes You on a Stroll Through One of America's Most Independent and Opulent Cities.
Newport, RI was established by the remarkable Ann Hutchinson and her followers when they were driven out of Boston in search of religious freedom. They settled on Aquidneck Island in 1636, alongside the native residents. This history has led to a culture of diversity down to today. Newport was the Capital of Rhode Island when the state became the first to declare independence from Great Britain. It became a hub of seafaring, U.S. Navy operations, and was home to the America’s Cup from 1930 – 1983. Although it is known for its opulent mansions, built by Industrial Age titans, Newport has the largest number of colonial homes still in use today. Take a stroll through the heart of “Old Town” Newport with Eric Dowdle in this entertaining puzzle.
