SEPTEMBER EVENTS

Can You Find It? Tiverton Historical Society will have a booth under the tent at the Country Day at Pardon Gray event sponsored by the Tiverton Land Trust at the Pardon Gray Preserve on Saturday, September 17th from 10-4. (Raindate is the next day.) This year we’ll have two scavenger hunt boards for you to play our game! Come find our booth and see if we can stump you!

Colonial Day will be held on Saturday, September 24th from 11-3 on the grounds of Chace-Cory House at Tiverton Four Corners. (Raindate is the next day). Come see local artisans demonstrate and display colonial crafts such as spinning, rug hooking, antique clocks, wood carving, and basketmaking. Kids can make colonial crafts and toys to take home. Harvest desserts will be available for purchase, as well as Tiverton merchandise from our museum shop. A great way to spend an autumn day!

Drive by and you’ll also get to see for yourself how we need to finish restoring the trim on the house and the entire corn crib. We’ve come a long way these past few years in restoration, but we need to continue with your help now that we are officially closed for summer tours.

HELP US RESTORE THE CORN CRIB!

In addition to the small fee we charge for the tours of our circa 1730 house museum (see below), we need more than that to restore the corn crib. Building materials cost a lot of money, as those of you who own homes know. Any monetary donation will help! Please send what you can to the PO Box listed on the “Contact THS” page or drop by when we’re open on Sundays through August (2-4:30) or at our Friday night Board meetings (4-5:30) April through November.

*******************************************************************************************************

We invite you to visit the historical Chace-Cory House, located at 3908 Main Road at Tiverton Four Corners in the small town of Tiverton, Rhode Island, the smallest state in the USA. The museum house is open for tours from 2-4:30 PM on Sunday during the summer months of June, July, and August (or by appointment) and is the headquarters of the Tiverton Historical Society. We sponsor a number of events throughout the year and welcome you to participate in them. In order to keep the roof over our head maintained, we need to charge a small fee for tours. Admission is free to Tiverton Historical Society (THS) members and children under 12 years, $3 for non-members, and $2 for students and seniors (55 years+). Directions
