Every week we feature a new hometown and share photos and facts using hashtags on social media. This week our #hashtag hometown is Newport!

Settled in 1808, Newport quickly established itself as an agriculture town. The town began booming with business very quickly. One of the most well known and long lasting businesses in Newport was the Condensed Milk Co.

Today the town remains a hub for those traveling off I-95, as well as a good place to have some privacy. While the main streets of Newport can get busy, Newport is a generally quiet place.

Some of the popular attractions are Sawyer's Dairy Bar, Angler's Resturant, and Sabasticook Lake.

Here are some photos we found of Newport on Instagram:
