There are many ways to become involved with the Historical Society! Help us preserve Narragansett’s rich and interesting history by helping to write the town’s history, research a topic of interest to you for a presentation, or become a guide during one of our tours. You might want to help out by greeting event attendees. Have other ideas? We’d love to hear them.
