In honor of Newport’s 100th birthday, Scott Wheeler, the publisher of Vermont’s Northland Journal, has written a book titled Newport’s Centennial: Voices from a Lakeside Community.
More than two dozen residents or former residents of the city share their memories of Newport in an earlier time. In addition to the stories, the 150-plus-page book includes more than 125 historic photos of Newport.
