Newport, RI is home to many Gilded Age mansions

Some mansions are open to the public

We decided to pick one we wanted to live in

State Capital in Providence

Roger Williams' compass. Williams founded the city of Providence, as well as co founded the state of Rhode Island. He was a theologian who advocated the separation of Church and State as well as fair dealing and treatment of Native American's.

After Williams' death in 1684 his remains were moved for reburial. Interestingly, when his remains were unearthed it was discovered that the roots of an apple tree had followed his decaying body and taken the shape of his skeleton.

We met with Kris Donovan, owner of The Donovan Gallery in Tiverton, RI where the Massachusetts inspired piece "Cradle of Liberty" will be on display

A cemetery in South Compton, RI. We found some more Pilgrims buried here.
