The Members of the Newport Historical Museum are extremely grateful to the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament for their generous contribution to our organization. This donation allowed us to make repairs to the roof of The Teacherage that would not have been otherwise possible. We are proud and humbled to be supported by this outstanding organization.

I recently visited Newport to see where I first started teaching music and was so glad to see The Teacherage preserved! I taught band classes there from 1978, 79 and 80. I was sad you were not open that day, but it was lovely to peek in the window! "Back in the day" we usually set up in the dining room to the right. I remember hanging Christmas stockings for the kids along the fireplace mantle. I always had great students from Newport. The school was K-8 then. I started a 7-8 Chorus back then, too, and we rehearsed in a trailer behind the school- in one big long line! :) It was lovely to see WCHS with a band bus or two! Shout out to any of my former students. I am retired from public school teaching but enjoy playing in an orchestra, a wind symphony, in a brass quintet and freelancing. If I find any old pictures from The Teacherage I will share them. Best wishes!
My father was stationed at Cherry Point around 1964. We lived in Newport on West Forest Drive near the Little League baseball field. I can recall two places on the highway outside of town. One was a small amusement park with animal statues and exhibits around the park. The other was a small very authentic Japanese restaurant, with paper walls and you stat on pillows on the floor at low tables. Does anyone recall those two places? Thanks, Mike Prevost
