2014 Historic Marker Presentation

Our Fall General Meeting and Potluck was held on Thursday, September 18th at the Methodist Church on State Street.  The evening included the annual WPS House Marker Award Ceremony.   Board member Doug Hinman, WPS researcher, historian, presented house markers to several historic properties, including the Warren Artillery Armory and the Narragansett Steam Engine Company. Doug also shared a summary of the history of each property with the membership.

 Many thanks to the members and guests that attended the meeting, as well as to Doug for his hard work completing the research on these properties.  The House Marker Presentation Ceremony is a yearly event for WPS and Doug plans to research other  properties for an additional presentation ceremony at our March general meeting.
