North End Walking Tour to Continue on November 6

 

On October 23 the Woonsocket Historical Society conducted a North End Walking Tour.  Unfortunately, the tour was cut short because of rain. 

On November 6 the tour will continue where it left off.  We will meet

at the corner of Winter Street and Woodland Road at 1:00 pm.  There is on-street parking on both Prospect and Woodland Road. 

 

Over the years the historical society has received many requests for a North End tour.  During  the summer, Irene Blais and historian Don Hoard have worked together  to research and develop the tour. 

 

Some of the streets we will walk are Winter, Prospect, Spring, Blackstone and a part of Harris Avenue.   The history and architecture of many homes will be discussed. 

 

The tour should last 1½ hours.  Please wear comfortable shoes.

Please join us in what will be an informative tour.

 

A special surprise is planned at the end!

 

This is a free tour.

 

Please call 595-3062 with inquiries.

Biden said the resolution will ensure the U.S. avoids an "economic catastrophe" as the railroads are the backbone of the supply chain.       Americans are taking home more money. As part of the latest jobs report, the Labor Department says average hourly earnings went up by 18 cents in November. The average wage is now 32-dollars and 82-cents.       Californians are remembering the seventh anniversary of a terrorist attack in San Bernardino today. Authorities say 14 people died and 22 were injured after a man and his wife opened fire during a work training event at the Inland Regional Center in 2015. A virtual event is taking place where the shooting happened.       Cryptocurrency company FTX is looking at even more issues after filing for bankruptcy.

The county is back in the CDC's medium COVID activity level, averaging more than 27-hundred new infections per day. That equals a 180-percent increase since the start of November.       USC plays Utah for the Pac 12 football championship in Las Vegas tonight.
