Guided Walking Tour:

~ 1670’s Pawtucket: The Jenks Settlement ~

Nathaniel Jenks House, East End - COMPRESSED

Join a Slater Mill interpreter for our popular one-mile guided walk that explores the founding of Pawtucket, Rhode Island by Joseph Jenks Jr. in the 17th century, and the establishment of an ironworks community in the town.

For 120 years prior to the arrival of Samuel Slater, Pawtucket was a thriving artisan community of ironworkers and ship builders, settled originally by Joseph Jenks, Jr. who left his father’s ironworks in Saugus, MA to establish a forge in Rhode Island. The tour explores the sites of the first forge, the homesteads of the Jenks family members, and other related structures. 

$5 per person. Suitable for all ages, but most appropriate for ages 12 and up. Requires some up-hill walking through downtown Pawtucket. Comfortable footwear recommended. 75 minutes. Light rain or shine.

Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings this fall:

Our annual, free summer music and art party is August 27! Mark you calendars …
