Since 1854, the Newport Historical Society has collected and preserved five centuries of history and continues to document Newport’s unique contribution to our national narrative.

Ruth Taylor, Executive Director of Newport Historical Society, joined me on What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK today to chat about all that’s happening, new and to do with the multi-faceted history-based institution.
