Stories unfold at NRPA lecture

April 3, 2012

NARRAGANSETT—As Jim Crothers detailed the strange and complicated relationships of William Sprague, the audience laughed and gasped at the personalities which have shaped Narragansett’s history. Crothers, Executive Director of the South County Museum, gave his lecture to a room of about 30 locals, captivated by the images and story lines of the past.

“I’ll give an old Irish song,” said Crothers to the crowd. “All stories are true, including this one, and they may have actually happened.”

NORTH KINGSTOWN – Since a fire destroyed the old Mancini’s Hardware store on Tower Hill Road in 2005, the site has sat vacant.
Soon, however, it will be demolished and replaced with Pawtucket Credit Union.
Mancini’s had been around for 40 years when lighting struck an electrical service box causing the blaze. The existing 0.97 acres houses the former 12,025 square-foot store and is zoned general business.
