While planning a visit to Newport, Rhode Island I came across a site called the Old Stone Mill or Newport Tower, located in Touro park. The mill looked really interesting and worthy of a quick stop for some photos.

There seems to be some controversy surrounding the Old Stone Mill.
While it is believed to have been used as a mill and built in the mid 17th century, tests have been done to suggest that it could’ve been built centuries earlier and possibly used for other purposes. Some have also said that the mill is comparable to other medieval buildings found in Europe that were built in the 1100s.

Regardless of when the Old Stone Mill was built and what it was really used for, it is a very interesting structure and made for a great place for a jump!
