Good park very close to Newport downtown. Starbucks and a line up of restaurants and pubs down the street. Good place for a warm sunny day for a walk / picnic with nearby market and restaurants.

Its build by Native Americans probably in the 15th Century long before the first colonists arrive in Rhode Island.

Tami Carey-Kretz

Nice park, interesting structure.

Johnny Wang

This place is worth the Googling. Interesting read!

Cynthia Mitchell

I wouldn't put this hi on the list of things to see in Newport but if you are nearby you should go see it. It is an odd structure in an area of a bunch of colonial homes.

Nugz III

Nice little park. Not much parking.

Roger Nelson

Most interesting if not for the connection to astronomical alignments, The Builders had to have advanced knowledge of positional astronomy, precession, and have to be working from a design that was well laid out for the location, suggesting a design. ... or they would have had to observe the stars and planets over a period of 20 years to get the alignments right.

Scott Rounds

Really cool mystical site.

Interesting thing about this is that we don't truly know the origins of the Tower. It would seem, based off its location, that it would have been an agricultural building (storage wind power, etc), but nobody knows and there was not thorough documentation of it existing throughout the town's history. it would also be unusual that a utilitarian building would have markings to denote solstice, equinox, etc. Despite all our technology, we still can't figure it's origins out. the fact it uses relatively primitive construction methods, doesn't necessarily mean it's more than several hundred years old. sometimes that's the intriguing aspect of a relatively simple structure like this, we may never really know it's true origins or design intent. Let's just enjoy it for what it is.

Bob Jensen

Interesting site with a strange history , a lot of theories of the building and usage .

It’s a pretty cozy and well organized space inside downtown Newport. There are many benches around which people can find one to rest, read or simply enjoy the breeze. Very comfortable area.

Jason Harmon

Pretty cool place. Watch the History Channel's show on it before you go. It's a cool mystery.

Really cool. Tuoro Jr. bought this site after Benedict Arnold’s place was razed. This tower is probably 1660’s english, but looks norse and was thought to be up till the 1940’s.

Interesting if you know some of the alternative theories people put forward regarding it's origin. I didn't see anything discribing its purpose or who built it.

(Translated by Google) The park around the tower is still known as Touro Park. This interesting tower and surrounding park is not the only place to be seen in the city. Newport; with its church, library and museum, it attracts many local and foreign tourists. In addition, White Horse Tavern, the first tavern in the US, is located in Newport. In short, the city is a place that lovers of history and archeology will love. (Original) Kulenin etrafındaki park, günümüzde hala Touro Parkı olarak biliniyor. Bu ilginç kule ve çevresindeki park, şehirde görülmesi gereken tek yer değil. Newport; kilisesi, kütüphanesi, müzesi ile yerli ve yabancı pek çok turisti kendine çekiyor. Bunun dışında ABD’de inşa edilen ilk taverna olan White Horse Tavern de Newport’ta bulunuyor. Kısacası şehir, özellikle tarih ve arkeoloji meraklılarının çok seveceği bir yer.

The whole city is just a walk back in time from the historic tower landmark to the whitehorse tavern. Oldest in America.

So cool! So mysterious!

Its amazing how much Newport Tower is overlooked in our area. The tower may be the oldest structure in the New World, and really doesn't get much attention. Newport Tower is an amazing, secretive, but beautiful structure. I had the opportunity to speak with Jim Egan, who runs the museum just a stones throw from the tower. Jim is a very bright man, who took the time to explain various documents, pictures, and theories on the towers origin. I would say Jim has it figured out. You can tell how passionate he is on the subject matter.If you're into history, especially pre-colonial, I would strongly suggest you going here!

Allen Todd

The Newport Tower is a nice little tower in the middle of a nice little park. At first glance it appears to to be a simple tower in a park, some claim that this tower has a much more complex history. There have been TV shows that have made the claim that the tower was built by the Knights Templar. This unsubstantiated, but if you are in Newport stop by and take a look this visit the quaint surrounding town.

Nice little urban park. Lots of architectural sites around the park.

Kyle Stephens

Really neat! Only small complaint is that Newport Tower didnt have a plaque or anything to tell us about it.

curt steinolfson

Was there while attending Naval Officer Candidate School, the tower is unique and not wholly understood in its' origin. Have watched History Channel episodes with various theories explored. Definitely worth the effort to explore!

William Lemos

Excellent photo op, with Channing Memorial Church nearby.

The most enigmatic structure in New England. Origins and purpose are not known. Some researchers believe it was built by Templars before Columbus. Featured in America Unearthed series on Science channel.

Wowwww

Beautiful stone structure with an interesting history to it. It's located in Touro Park so it adds to the historic ambiance of the area. Definitely a nice spot to stop and take some photos since the park has plenty of picturesque trees and statues which make for excellent compositions.
