Friday, April 5th, 2019 at 8:00 pm
Sponsored by Historic Wickford, Inc. and the North Kingstown Arts Council, this documentary positions Wickford Village on the map of extraordinary villages to visit in the Northeast. The video covers the recent installation of several Wickford Historic Markers designed, written, and placed in 2018 by HistWick. This “walk” brings viewers to one of Rhode Island’s most treasured destinations—Wickford Village.
The documentary includes the making of the markers and the history behind some of the
most prominent and noteworthy buildings and homes throughout the village. Designed to blend into the surroundings, these visually striking markers with impressive illustrations, engage visitors with facts and stories about Wickford Village through extensive research culled from documents spanning centuries.
Interviews with the creators of the visuals and research for the video also explore in detail
Wickford Village’s development from the Narragansett settlements through the onset of the 20th century.
