Description“The Border City,” Newport is a gateway between New England and Canada. The city lies on the southern side of Lake Memphremagog, whose name is derived from an Abenaki Indian word meaning “beautiful waters.” In Canada on the western side of the 32-mile-long lake rises Owl's Head, named after a Native American chief. Its 3,360-foot summit offers impressive views.
On Prospect Hill, the granite towers of St. Mary's Star of the Sea Church rise above the city; phone (802) 334-5066.
