“Mapping Memories: Wakefield’s Main Street”
Now on Exhibit

The South County History Center is pleased to announce its newest exhibit, "Mapping Memories: Wakefield's Main Street," now on display at its Kingston headquarters. The exhibit explores Wakefield's development from a typical New England mill town into an important center of commercial activity. The causes of this transformation, namely the construction of the Narragansett Pier Railroad and the advent and proliferation of the automobile, are examined as well.

"Mapping Memories" features newly-discovered photographs, historical maps, and trivia about Wakefield's commercial district. Click here to check out our operating hours and plan your visit!
