September 2014 TOWER FENCE RESTORATION

Newport’s single most identifiable sentinel to its past is the Stone Tower in Touro Park. Displayed on the City flag, the Tower has silently watched over the comings and goings of Newport’s history and is still shrouded in mystery and intrigue.

Guarding the Tower is a 19th century cast iron fence, protecting it from those who might want to get a closer look at the Tower for good or for mischief.

The ages have taken its toll on the condition of the fence.

The Historic Hill Association, seeing a need for restoration of the fence is reaching out to the community asking for help in raising the funds needed to restore the fence.
