There's a whole library and a museum in there.
The beetle and insect paintings were very nice. Thanks plep!

thanks for another great post plep. Here's a good resource for people traveling to the area - the site includes a "virtual tour" of Shrewsbury - there are some nice photos.

Hi there cogat - some years ago, I lived in Newport for about 8 months. :)

I posted this morning, but I meant to add that this site is one that demands time.

I've never lived in Newport, but I do know the Mariner's Museum in Newport News, Virginia
