Earlier this year, we obtained legal rights to Tim Cranston’s books on the history of local homes in the village. We have now made that information public on our website. Tim’s first book is now available in our interactive map. When on the home page, scroll down to See an Interactive Map of Wickford (in a green box). Click on a home and a photo and detailed information will appear. Give it a try today!
Board member Chris Scofield and web designer Cynthia Bogart are working on adding to the website maps Tim’s information that covers homes on Brown, Elam and West Main Streets. We are very appreciative of Chris and Cynthia skillful work and amazing dedication to this HistWick project that residents and visitors alike will find valuable and engaging.
