Explore Our Town: Charlestown

The local legends, historical happenings, and backyard secrets of Charlestown, Rhode Island, are the focus of Our Town, an ongoing Rhode Island PBS community project.

In this, our 9th installment of Our Town, we head southwest to Charlestown.  Residents and community leaders there share with us the history, family pride, and points of interest that make Charlestown what it is today.  From the history of the earliest settlers and historic homes to organizations and seaside neighborhoods that Charlestown is recognized for today. 

Join us for the premier of Our Town: Charlestown Wednesday, March 6th when we learn more about hot spots including The Fantastic Umbrella Factory, the Rathskeller, and the General Stanton Inn.  We get an expert explanation about the ecology of the local beaches, and learn more about the organizations that preserve this town’s historic and natural resources.
