Newport, Rhode Island

When many people think of Newport, Rhode Island, they think of the lavish lifestyles America’s wealthiest families lived in their summer homes. The goal of my project is to help people understand the immigrants who worked in order to make Newport what it is today. Ultimately, I would like to convey how Irish immigrants developed the Newport that families like mine and many others enjoy today. I want to be able to take the viewers of my project on a journey through Newport unlike any other. This journey will enable viewers to see the direct impact of the hard working immigrants on their descendants who still live in Newport, as well as the impact on the city’s formation and culture.
