Dr. Weed presents the Sowams Heritage Area to residents of North Farm in Bristol, RI

Dr. David Weed gave a 45-minute presentation on the Sowams Heritage Area Project to about a dozen residents of North Farm in Bristol, RI. He was approached by a resident at the Mt. Hope Farmers’ Market several weeks earlier and asked if he would like to tell some of the residents about the 17th century history of the area that included where the Farm is located. Dr. Weed presented to a lively group, many of whom did not grow up in the area and were new to its history. The group enjoyed the presentation so much that they hope to have Dr. Weed back sometime to present to a larger group of residents.
