Life of the Square

Seafarers, soldiers, statesmen, shopkeepers and school children, among a cast of thousands, have all entered upon the stage that is Washington Square, the very heart of the city. Each has left their imprint upon the place. 

This project is made possible by the generous support of Elizabeth "Lisette" Prince and the Buchanan Burnham Endowment for Visiting Scholars.  All images are from the collections of the Newport Historical Society unless otherwise noted.
