Wickford—Seeing the Big Picture

Join Tim Cranston for this stroll through Wickford as he explains how many of the historical details of the village are woven together and account for the one of a kind place we all cherish today. Along the way we will stop and examine six of the “big picture” concepts that help shape Wickford’s history, including the extraordinary Washington Academy, the intriguing business enterprise that was the livestock drover’s turnpike known as the Ten Rod Rd, shipbuilding, and the impacts of transportation changes throughout the centuries. Registration opens July 1st and is required.
