August 15, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Newport Historical Society is pleased to offer a socially distant living history program. On Saturday, August 15th from 10am-2pm, two costumed living historians will interpret at the Colony House behind stanchions. The historical interpreters will represent opposing viewpoints during the Newport Stamp Act Riots of August 1765 and debate about the growing tensions concerning the stamp tax. Donations welcome.
Social distancing guidelines of maintaining six feet apart from other visitors that are outside of their “quaranteam” and face masks are required.
