Location Overview
Location Photo: 
Location Text: 
The peninsula that is home to Castle Hill is located on the western-most tip of Newport, towards the southern edge of Aquidneck Island, just at the entrance of Narragansett Bay. It is this omniscient location, overseeing the East Passage and the Atlantic, that has secured its varied and notable history.

Prior to European settlement in the 1630s, the native Narragansett Indians built an earthwork here to signal messages to nearby tribes across the bay. After the arrival of the English, an 18th century watchtower was built and later, after the Revolutionary War, a battery of cannons was added (and fired) to defend against attacks.
