The Finns in Newport

When the Finns first arrived to Newport, they were coming to a community that had over one hundred years of history to it. In many ways the history of Finnish Newport and regular Newport often seem like they are separate histories. However, when the Finns arrived, they were adding on to the rich history of Newport that included Native Americans, White colonial settlers, and eventually Civil War veterans. They do not just have a separate history from Newport, but also a history that is part of Newport’s story as well.
