Local Walk Series Continues (sponsored by the Barrington Public Library, BLCT, Barrington Preservation Society & Appalachian Mountain Club) –
The second walk of the series is in historic Drownville on Wednesday, August 12 at 6 p.m.. It was originally named after Alfred Drown, who subdivided his farm into house lots after passenger rail service was established in 1855 connecting Barrington with Providence.
Today the street that bears his name now boasts some of Barrington’s most attractive homes and gardens. The walk will be led by Gregg O’Brien and Jean Marie Josephson, seasoned AMC Narragansett Chapter leaders. Feel free to stay after the walk and join them for dinner at a local restaurant.
The walk is 3 to 3 1/2 miles. Meet at the walk site by 6:00PM (United Methodist Church parking lot at 230 Washington Road in Barrington). To register for the walk and to find directions and parking information for Drownville, visit barringtonlibrary.org and navigate to Adult Events. The walk is free and open to all.
