From 1847 to 1937 Newport's connection to both New York and Boston was through the railroad and the daily trips of the Fall River Line. A trip on the Fall River Line boats was both practical and pleasurable. This article describes the height of the New England Steamship Company and its impact on Newport. Richard Berry and Edward W. Smith, Jr., provided helpful insight for the text written by Daniel Snydacker, Jr., Executive Director. The text and photographs from the exhibit have been enhanced with new images and information.
