The Great Road Day
September 23 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm| FREE
Six historic sites along seventeenth-century Great Road (Route 123) in Lincoln, Rhode Island, host special tours and displays! All sites are open free to the public: Arnold House, Blackstone Valley Historical Society, Hannaway Blacksmith Shop, Hearthside, Saylesville Meeting House, and Valentine Whitman Jr. House. You can pile your family into the car and take a short jaunt between all the sites, or just make it a destination day! Explore the area and discover how local residents and visitors lived and worked from the seventeenth century through the twentieth century. Taking place during late September when leaves start to change their colors, a day trip along this route is sure to be beautiful. The historic homes, farms, and mills create a rolling landscape along the Great Road Historic District, which retains much of the Blackstone Valley’s early 19th-century rural character.
