Easton Burial Ground Open House
April 29 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Newport’s Cemetery Commission invites the public to an open house at the Jonathan Easton Burial Ground on Saturday April 29th from 11am to 1 pm.
This small but significant site is the final resting place for some members of a founding family of Newport. Gravestones carved by John Stevens II, John Stevens III, and John Bull showcase the talent of Newport’s colonial artisans.
Members of the commission will be happy to answer questions about this site or any in the city.
A number of stones will be labeled with family and carver information.
The Easton site is located east of Annandale Rd. and the Weaver Street intersection.
Parking is encouraged on Weaver St., Lowndes St., or East Bowery Street.
Contact the commission, if needed, at email@example.com
