Provide a Glimpse into South County History
Narragansett, RI--July 9, 2002--Relive the history of a once-thriving village on Narragansett Bay with family and friends this summer by taking a South Ferry Walking Tour. The one-hour interpretive walks will take place on Thursday, July 25, and Thursday, August 8, at 10:30 a.m.
Led by volunteers Wayne and Bernice Durfee of Narragansett, the program begins at the Coastal Institute Visitor Center on the URI Narragansett Bay Campus. The guides then lead participants through the historic sites at South Ferry, including the old ferry landing, the WW I military bunkers, South Ferry Church, and the campus of the URI Graduate School of Oceanography.
In addition, visitors can enjoy the Living on the Edge coastal science exhibit and the Coastal Institute Bookstore, which will be open until 2 p.m. the days of the walks.
