Narragansett Bay Classroom

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 19 or August 2, 2017.  The program will begin with a short slide presentation and lecture 10:30 a.m.  The walking tour will end at 12:00 p.m.

On July 19 and August 2, meet in the Coastal Institute building (# 6 on the attached map) on the Narragansett Bay Campus.

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 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 open to the public. Please call the URI Office of Marine Programs at 401-874-6211 to reserve your place.
