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, become a guide during one of our tours, or help organize or promote an event. We are currently trying to establish committees. If interested in helping in some way, please email and let us know how you’d like to help!
