Prudence Island Historical & Preservation Society*

 
 
 

The Prudence Island Historical and Preservation Society was formed in 1983 to preserve buildings and other historic places, collect and preserve memorabilia pertaining to life on Prudence Island, and to encourage research into the history of the island.


 Located in Narragansett Bay and part of the Town of Portsmouth, Prudence Island has had a rich and varied history: From the Narragansett Indian inhabitants, then Colonial settlement and prosperous farming community, through the emergence of summer colonies, life on the island has changed quite a bit over the last 400 years.


The Annual Meeting of the Society will be held Saturday, June 28 at 11:00 am in the Union Church.  Joe Bains will give a talk on “Lost Prudence”  to set the stage for the museum’s major exhibit.
