Miantonomi Tower Open

In observance of Memorial Day the Miantonomi Park tower will be open on Monday, May 29, from 1:30 – 3 p.m. This event recognizes the historical significance of the tower as a memorial to the veterans of World War I. The 100-foot stone tower, completed in 1929, was designed by William Kendall of the renowned architectural firm McKim, Mead & White. The interior stone steps lead to a narrow metal staircase that ascends to the top observation deck. Located on the highest point in Newport, views of Providence and Block Island are common on clear days. Families are welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
