historic tours for curious people


About Carol, your tour guide

Carol Miller, your tour guide, combines her geeky, research-type personality with enthusiasm, a little wit and a curious nature that enable her to zero in on the most fascinating details for your tour.

Carol was born into the entrepreneurial Miller family of Newport. From the age of 16, Carol designed and sold scrimshaw to local merchants and by the time she was 18, her engravings were showcased at the exclusive Bonwit Teller and B. Altman stores in Manhattan. By the age of 26, Carol was designing and importing garments from the Far East. Her clients included Universal Studios, MGM, and Royal Caribbean, only to mention a few.

Currently, Carol is an award-winning artist and sculptor. Some of her work can be seen on her website: www.carolmillerart.com.

Her art will be featured in a one-person show at the Newport Art Museum in 2013 and she is currently working on several commissions for some of Newport’s most notable aristocracy.
