The Historical Society, the Ten Mile River Group and the EP Conservation Commission wish to thank everyone for their support of the RI Preservation Conference and the Rumford Bake-Off extravaganza. We continue to offer a family outing experience here at Hunt’s Mills: history/ hiking/ herons/ herring and so much more. The Hunt House is in showplace condition with a new “costume” room and you will want to make this a regular spot for your family to enjoy. If you enjoy early map reading, visit the new Ed Center to mark the progression of Rehoboth becoming East Providence.The EP yearbooks are handy there for you to show your children/ grandchildren a class photo or two.

The EPHS is a volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation of local history. We are located at the 1751 John Hunt House Museum in the Hunts Mills Local Historic District, maintain a URI Master Gardening program, and provide educational programs open to the public.
