Where Does Our Water Come From?


On Wednesday, May 1, 2024, at 7:00 p.m., Roger Williams-Rumford Grange will sponsor an open community event at 125 No. Broadway, Rumford. Ray Wolf, historian and author, will give a presentation about the “History of the Scituate Reservoir” and the lost villages. As residents of East Providence and the greater Providence area, we get our water from the Scituate Reservoir. Do you know the history of the reservoir and how several villages were taken in order for it to be constructed? All are welcome to attend this open presentation to learn more about this important part of the history of Rhode Island. Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of Mr. Wolf’s presentation.

Since 2008, Ray Wolf has been writing historical books encompassing the history of Rhode Island, from the creation of the Scituate Reservoir and its significance on his family, to diners across the state, from villages within Rhode Island towns, to, of course, outhouses, volumes I, II and III. Mr. Wolf will have some of his books with him to purchase that evening. All are welcome!
