What exactly is "local residents?" Bristol residents? Warren residents? RI residents? Please specify!

Was wondering the same thing Cynthia...I did see that it said for Newport County Residents..but Blithewold is in Bristol so I was wondering if maybe it was open to others..

Thank-you for the questions. The release states all "Newport County residents and employees of the hospitality industry." I assume only those residing or working in Newport County. Has anyone called any of the sites above and asked?

It is my understanding that it is indeed Newport county residents only. Ie. Newport, Portsmouth, middletown, tiverton and little compton (may have left some out). I work at the PSNC and will be at marble house Sunday :) great afternoon date as the teahouse and stables both are serving food now. Come enjoy the scenery!

I went to Blithewold on Sunday and asked about this and was told it was just for Newport county residents they said they do a seperate day for Bristol county.
