Depending on where you are staying in Newport, you may pass right by this on your way down to the Wharf or Thames St. Wouldn't say it's a must see; however, fun if you stumble on it.

Easy walk from anywhere in Newport and kinda cool to see. Not worth going out of your way for, but worth a walk if you're in the area - especially if you have dogs.

The Old Stone Mill was a structure that I was very interested in seeing on my visit to Newport. It has a cylindrical, rough hewn appearance and many stories regarding its origin, which is probably the biggest appeal when visiting this site. It sits in...More

There are some intriguing stories of this structure, but the mystery remains. There is a small museum nearby where some of the historical details can be learned. It was a bit of a hike from the Wyndham Onshore, but doable even for old folks.
