NORTH KINGTSTOWN â€“ People attending the townâ€™s fireworks display on July 4 at the town beach will be facing a number of challenges.
The band pavilion is under construction, the old meal site is being demolished and both the Beechwood House and the 17th Century Lodewick Updike House, sitting on the lot next door, are ready to roll to their new locations.
CHARLESTOWN â€” Along with the scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean, alluring beaches, and thick forests, one of the best and most breathtaking pieces of Charlestown resides right above our heads.
The townâ€™s gorgeous dark skies have become more than a reason to stop by the Frosty Drew Nature Center & Observatory. According to Observatory Director Francine Jackson, the skies have actually drawn people to visit and even reside in Charlestown.
