Lookout

At the far end of a large field very near Fort Adams is a carriage house long past prime. Interesting architecure and the bones of the building still visible.

Its all fenced up so you can't enter but if you walk behind a path will lead to a lookout over the Narragansett Bay.

You get the top view of the carriage house which will show the same level of repair as the front.

The view though is quite nice and overall worth the short walk.

The old steps are still visible toward the top and make for an amusing contrast to the new staircase.

Hannah's Tower

Hannah Robinson Tower is only five minutes from Horizon on the corner of Routes 1 and 138 opposite a Mobil station.

Hannah, as a young girl of aristocrats in colonial RI, fell in love with her French/Dance tutor living in nearby Newport.

Her father's strenuous objections led to Hannah's restriction home and a eventual scandalous escape.

Estranged from family for years, Hannah returned to grace by revealing details of the escape.

On returning home, she stopped here at McSparran Hill to view of her dearly missed homeland.

This 100 foot tower was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1938 and used in WWII as a observation tower for Narragansett Bay
