Did the British Army steal the town records when they withdrew from Newport during the American Revolution; is there a tunnel on Touro Street; did an artist on Mill Street discover the tomato? This tour, presented by a guide in historical clothing, teases out the truth from the fiction in these stories and other infamous Newport tales.
