The event will start with a wine and cheese reception and at 7:00 pm will continue with a short business meeting, followed by the first public showing of The Wickford Walk, a HistWick sponsored video produced by North Kingstown native Charlie Weber.

This video celebrates the historic marker project through a tour of HistWick narrated by Tim Cranston and interviews with the artists that provided the marker illustrations.

HistWick Holiday Kitchen Tour: Sunday, December 2nd



One of HistWick’s most popular events, the Holiday Kitchen Tour, will take place on Sunday, Dec. 2, 2018 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The event coincides with Wickford’s Festival of Lights. Those from near and far with interest in historic homes, kitchen design, and home decor and the just-plain curious will visit 10 to 12 kitchens in the village. So please circle the date on your calendar today. The event’s proceeds support historic preservation in the village and the local food bank.

The HistWick kitchen tour planning committee is now in high gear and would like to identify a few more kitchens. We will also need dozens of docents to station in the homes and their kitchens. If you would like to be part of the tour, or know someone that might be interested, or would like to be a docent, please contact: Sheila Skiffington (sheilaskiffington@gmail.com); Mary Ann Hackett (maryannhackett@gmail.com); or Nancy Gauthier (nancy.gauthier@aol.com)
