The Newport Tower (also known as: Round Tower, Touro Tower, Newport Stone Tower and Old Stone Mill) is a round stone tower located in Touro Park in Newport, Rhode Island (USA). It is commonly considered to have been a windmill built in the mid-17th century. However, the tower has received attention due to speculation that it is actually several centuries older and would then represent evidence of pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact. In the far background is a church. A man s leaning against one of the pillars and a cat is standing between two of them.
