NEWPORT BOOK AVAILABLE
ON APPLE I-BOOK BOOKSTORE
“Newport,” a book on the history of the city of Newport, Oregon recently published by Arcadia Publishing of South Carolina, is now available through the Apple i-Bookstore. The book was written under the auspices of the Lincoln County Historical Society by Diane Disse, Jodi Weeber, and Loretta J. Harrison and is available in hard copy at the Burrows and Log Cabin museums, through the Society’s website—oregoncoasthistory.org, and through Amazon.com. The list price is $21.99.
Through 228 rich photographs and text, the book follows the history of Newport from its early inhabitants through the two World Wars illustrating the beauty and bounty of the area and the independent, hearty and versatile people who populated it.
Logging, fishing, and tourism are the major themes of the books as they are of the history of Newport. From Oysterville to the Bayfront to Nye Beach and beyond, the book charts the development of occupations and the people who served in them, including early founders like Sam Case, John Nye, Sam Irvin, Clarinda Copeland, and others.
“We were delighted to be able to write and edit this book about Newport and provide the first new history of the area since the 1970s,” Harrison said. “The book is beautifully printed, and the photos and text tell a dramatic story.”
