Historic South Ferry Walking Tour
Relive the history of a once-thriving village, which became a military outpost, on Narragansett Bay with family and friends by taking a South Ferry Walking Tour. You are welcome to join the 90-minute interpretive walk on Wednesday, July 25 or August 8, 2012. The program will begin with a short slide presentation and lecture in the large conference room in the Coastal Institute Visitor Center on the URI Narragansett Bay Campus at 10:30 a.m. The walking tour will end at 12:00 p.m.
Our historians Wayne and Bernice Durfee of Narragansett will guide participants through the historic sites at South Ferry, including the old ferry landing, the WWI military bunkers, the campus of the URI Graduate School of Oceanography and the South Ferry Church.
In addition, participants can visit the Coastal Institute Bookstore, which will be open during the day of the walk.
The South Ferry Walking Tour is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is not required. For information or directions, call the URI Office of Marine Programs at 874-6211, or visit our website.
