Join an expert tour guide wearing an authentic 18th century British military uniform and explore the sites and stories of the soldiers and citizens affected during this time. Walking tours depart outside of the Museum of Newport History at the Brick Market, located at the foot of Washington Square, 127 Thames Street, Newport RI. Attendees can look for a sandwich board sign indicating the departure point next to the building. Tours cost $15-20 per person, $10-15 for Newport Historical Society members and active duty military.
