  1. Founded in 1966, the East Providence Historical Society meetings were originally held at the Roger Williams Grange, Rumford Grange and the former Rumford Community Center. In 1987 the Society was granted a lease from the City to occupy the historic John Hunt House in the picturesque Hunt’s Mills section in Rumford. The house, built between 1750 – 1790, is a 5 bay, center chimney, Georgian style residence typical of a well-to-do family living in a country setting. The John Hunt House functions as a headquarters for regular and special events and is located
  2. The entire focus of the Historical Society took a major turn in 1976, when several individuals learned that the former property of one of the Charter members, Myra Appleby, was up for sale. The property had fallen into major disrepair, and following a meeting, each stepped forward into the kitchen of Mr. John Emin, and placed a ten-dollar bill on the counter.

Since that time, it has strived to preserve the history of our town by oral histories, slide show presentations on the individual villages in Burrillville, working with the Historic District Commission in its placement of Harrisville and Oakland on the National Register, cataloging the cemeteries, and in various other ways. There are many aspects of preservation, but the participation of the people is the most important one. Support us with your ideas, active membersh
  4. The Johnston Historical Society was formed by a group of historically minded residents in the late 1970s. They had previously been members of the Johnston Bicentennial Committee/Farnum House Committee which, of course, had come together to celebrate the nation's 200th anniversary. The founders of the society saw the need for a permanent organization whose purpose would be to research and preserve the town's history. In the early 1980s the group met in what was then called the Farnum/Angell House, and the society received a big boost when the town deeded the house over to our group in 1984. We

  8. We created this page to display county information for each state. Our team is engaged in building out the content to populate this page, sharing genealogy and history information. In the near future, we will be adding our library records which contain Books, Newspapers, Photos, Postcards, and other unique materials.
