Remarkable women have contributed to society from the beginning of time and Newport has been home to scores of them. Visit the Common Burying Ground grave sites of influential women like Ida Lewis, Ann Franklin, and Jane Stuart as well as the sites of less well-known, but no less remarkable women like Sophia Little, Harriet Rice and Temperance Grant. Join Lew Keen, chair of the Newport Historic Cemetery Commission and Trudy Keen, independent researcher as they present the histories of these and other uncommon women.
