Part III: The History of Newport Parish
The first parish system in what later became known as Isle of Wight County was known as the Warrosquoyake Parish. It was later divided into an Upper and Lower Parish and finally united as the Newport Parish. Come and hear about the local history of the Anglican/Episcopal Church in Isle of Wight and the Old Brick Church.
