Overview
Newport and its surrounding areas are beautiful and bountiful, offering resources for fishing, logging, shipping, and tourism. Today's community, similar to populations that settled the land in earlier days, is independent, hearty, and versatile. The Yacona, the Native Americans who called Newport home before the arrival of other cultures, lived almost entirely off the land and waterways. Later settlers, while still reliant on natural resources, integrated technology into the growth of their society. As the area matured, the desire to find balance and preserve natural resources grew. Today Newport's heritage remains strong, and this book serves as a tribute to its history.

Author
This book was written under the auspices of the Lincoln County Historical Society, which generously donated its resources. The authors, who all maintain positions with the society, are Diane Disse, museum educator; Jodi Weeber, museum archivist; and Loretta Harrison, executive director. Together they selected photographs, researched Newport's history, and wrote this book. The public is invited to use the same resources through the library in the Burrows House Museum in Newport. Educational exhibits and programs also are available through the Burrows House, as well as the Log Cabin Museum.
