Gilbert Stuart Birthplace & Museum
Saturday, May 18, 2013
815 Gilbert Stuart Road, Saunderstown
You may know of the museum, waterwheels, and mills, but the 23-acre Stuart property has a lovely nature trail with a beautiful pond, streams, marsh, stonewalls, historic cemeteries, and the chance to catch a glimpse of wildlife, including dozens of bird species.
We’ll meet at the gate at 10:00am and begin our hike promptly at 10:15am. Please park in the large, lower parking lot across the street from the brithplace (not the one across from the museum). The hike is free (although donations to the museum are greatly appreciated); there is a small fee if you want to take a guided tour of the gristmill and birthplace after the hike. Be sure to bring plenty of snacks and water. Click here for a list of guidelines for hiking with kids.
