This year*s statewide preservation conference, *Sticks and
Stones,* examines historic rural landscapes and the long-term impact of changes on the land. The event gets underway at St. Eugene*s Church in historic Chepachet Village with a keynote speech on the geology and cultural history of New England*s stone walls. The speech is followed by 10 workshops, 6 films, and 11 bus and walking tours of historic places around Rhode Island*s northwest corner, including farms and forests, mid-century modern residences, and village centers from Harrisville to North Scituate. Presented by the R.I. Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission, the annual conference is a great opportunity to explore the historic Northwest Corner and network with professionals in the field.
