Summary

The town of Newport, nestled in the foothills of the Smokies, has a rich and storied history. This book reveals glimpses of the community's past, when the everyday citizens went about their daily lives while playing vital roles in the community's history. While some of these rare photographs have appeared in local newspapers, many have never been published or seen by more than a few. Most of these photographs were taken by ordinary citizens who never imagined that they might be preserving history, from the portraits of renowned townspeople like Thomas Sandusky Gorman, "the father of Newport," to images of buildings that have long since been razed. Journey with local historian Edward Walker through this pictorial account of times gone by in Newport, Tennessee. Book jacket.
