The EarthView team is excited to be visiting Wickford Middle School in North Kingstown, Rhode Island! This is our first visit to the school and only our second visit ever to a middle school in Rhode Island! We last visited Nicholas A. Ferri Middle School in Johnston on April 10th.
Since we are visiting for the first time we thought it would be fun to look up some interesting facts about North Kingstown!
Did you know that North Kingstown was first settled by Roger Williams in 1637 and later became a part of Kings Towne in 1674? The settlement of Kings Towne included the present day towns of North Kingstown, South Kingstown, Narragansett and Exeter. In 1722, Kings Towne was split giving way to North and South Kingstown. Exeter remained a part of North Kingstown until 1742 when it broke from the western part of town.

There are many other fun and historic points of interest in North Kingstown such as Devils Foot Rock, Smith's Castle and Casey Farm-the oldest operating farm in New England. North Kingstown is certainly an interesting place to visit!
We hope that the students of Wickford Middle School enjoy their visit with Earthview!
