Lila Delman Real Estate, in partnership with the Newport Historical Society, has launched an innovative new web-based app entitled Explore Historic Newport. The new app, which is free of charge, allows visitors to tour the City by the Sea either remotely or in person; learn about sites as diverse as "The Breakers", "Cardines Field" and "Touro Synogouge". Unlike most mobile apps, Explore Historic Newport is designed to work on any platform that accesses the web, such as a smart phone, tablet or desktop computer. Access the app at the newly designed Lila Delman Real Estate site, http://www.liladelman.com/newport-2, or at http://newport.toursphere.com/ . Several launch events are scheduled to take place in Newport later this month.
Lila Delman Real Estate, long recognized as RI’s premier historic luxury property brokerage and a dedicated supporter of historic preservation, believes that the partnership with NHS is a natural, reflecting the company’s RI roots, its passion for the state’s history, and its commitment to exploring new technologies. To date, the tech-savvy company has won several important state preservation awards for renovations to their corporate offices. Known for the sales of such iconic RI landmarks as Gray Craig and Beacon Rock Carriage House, company president Melanie Delman explained the company’s partnership with NHS thusly, “When this unique opportunity presented itself it was an easy decision to partner with the NHS. We believe in the RI areas we live and work in, and I think there is no more rewarding way to do well than by doing good in our own community. And this new app is the perfect fit for us, because showcasing RI’s great historic properties is what we do best.”
NHS is holding a launch party for Explore Historic Newport on Friday September 21, 2012 at 9 AM, at the Colony House on Washington Square. During this free event, attendees will learn about the web app through a demonstration, hear about select points of interest, and receive a preview of the upcoming phases to expand the content. Breakfast refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to 401-841-8770. NHS is also sponsoring the Newport County Chamber of Commerce’s After Hours event on Thursday September 27, 2012 at 5pm, again at the Colony House on Washington Square. The new app will also be presented during this evening event.
