Newport and the Northeast Kingdom unveils the kingdom that crowns the state of Vermont—the only state that has a kingdom. Located at the Canadian border, the Northeast Kingdom includes Newport and other towns along the southern end of majestic Lake Memphremagog. Through vintage photographs and postcards, this book brings back the days when the Northeast Kingdom was a grand resort area, served by shiny railroads, newly painted excursion boats, and exclusive hotels. It discloses some surprising aspects of the area, including little-known facts about the invention of the combination screen-storm door and the first wood-burning steamboats; the legendary serpent believed to live in the lake; and colorful townspeople such as the fisherwoman known as Maggie Little.
