This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Established by Colonials seeking religious and cultural freedom in 1639, Newport has enjoyed nearly four centuries of growthfrom a thriving seaport to a summer hideaway for industrial revolution excesses, from an active Navy town to a modern world-class destination for sailing and tourism. But beyond the marbled mansions and active harbor-front wharves lie legendary locals building a city of living history, education, arts, and philanthropy. And as this City-by-the-Sea celebrates 375 years in 2014, residents honor the diversity of the people who keep it flourishing. Stone carvers John Fud Benson and son Nick utilize time-honored techniques etching gravestones and memorials by hand in the oldest trade shop in the country, while nearby, the largest high-tech megayachts in the world dock at the Dana familys Newport Shipyard. Newporter and Navy SEAL Terry Moy helped the last Apollo mission land safely back on Earth, while advocate Florence Gray helped keep affordable housing residents grounded only a few blocks from the citys upscale neighborhoods.
