History Happening Here
All are welcome at the Museum of the Block Island Historical Society.
Founded in 1942, we have shared our collections with all who visit our galleries at the historic Woonsocket House in Bridgegate Square.
A restoration project is now underway to upgrade the West Gallery exhibit room, kitchen area, and install a new climate-control system throughout the building - all to ensure the preservation of our valuable collection.
Our exhibits portray Block Island’s history through unique objects, historic photographs, and educational panels. Visit our museum now and join us as we look to the future.
