Historic Irish Cemetery Tours: Back this Fall by popular demand!
September 25, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pmfree
Tours of the historic Barney Street Cemetery will be offered by the Museum of Newport Irish History on two Sundays in September and two in October, following the launch of this new tour during the 45th Annual Newport Irish Heritage Month, last March.
The tours of the final resting place of many of Newport’s early Irish immigrants and site of Rhode Island’s first Catholic church, are approximately 30 minutes long, and will be given by popular local historian and guide, Steve Marino. The tours are given weather permitting. A light rain won’t stop the tour, but torrential downfalls and high winds will result in a cancellation. No fee.
