“Fire destroyed the Dana Coal Elevator at Newport, Ky., entailing a loss of $50,000.  The building almost adjoined the remains of the “Old '76” distillery that burned last week.”  from Fuel Magazine, 1906. “The new stock-pens at Finchtown, near Newport, are completed, and about 2,000 head of stock will be wintered in them” Courier-Journal, December 6, 1880

You can read about the 1854 explosion of a Newport saw mill, at this site.

Newport had an award winning silk manufacturing plant, here.
