Historic Grounds Walking Tour

Sunday, April 08, 2018 at 1:30pm to 2:30pm

65 Hunts Mill Road, Rumford

The Hunt House Museum is located on fourteen acres of land situated along the Ten Mile River in East Providence. The Hunt House is a manor house that was built in the 1750’s for John Hunt and his new bride, Rachel Carpenter. Both John and Rachel were descendants of the original land owners who first came to the area in the 1640’s. At the site are the remains of mills that were built there in 1643 to help establish a new community which is now called Rumford. The Museum, decorated and furnished with objects from the 1750’s era, is managed and maintained by the East Providence Historical Society. The Heritage Gardens at the Hunt House Museum are period gardens.
