Old Town House

HistWick is still actively soliciting pledges for the renovation of the Old Town House. To bring the Old Town House back to life, Historic Wickford, Inc. needs everyone’s support with a pledge, no matter how small! No money is being collected nowbut YOUR pledge is very much needed to secure the total amount necessary to restore this 1807 historic meeting house.

For the many pledges that we have already received, we are truly grateful. Our goal is to generate as many pledges as possible. So the full participation of our membership and HistWick’s many friends is vital because your pledge will help secure both federal and state grants!
