Event: “History of Narragansett: A Chronology of Major Events 1800 – 1999” – Saturday, March 25, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm – Free – Maury Loontjens Memorial Library
Professor Richard Vangermeersch has completed a lengthy research effort of major Narragansett events over a two-hundred-year span and has published a chronology, which he will present on Saturday, March 25th, at 2:00 pm. In addition to an overview, he will present “Interesting Tidbits” (among the topics is The Issue of Gambling in Narragansett at the turn-of-the-century.) Conversation and exchange of ideas are encouraged. The presentation will be facilitated by Narragansett Historical Society board member, Sue Bush. A limited number of the chronology binders will be available. One of the major purposes of this presentation is to spur further interest and more in-depth study of particular topics.
