Narragansett Land Conservancy Trust
Narragansett, RI 02882United States
The Narragansett Land Conservancy Trust strives to protect open space, farm land, scenic vistas, wetlands and other critical habitats in an effort to preserve land for future public recreational and educational use and maintain access to coastal waters. For example, in 1991, the town of Narragansett bought the Kinney Bungalow and Sunset Farm. Both are today managed by the Narragansett Land Conservancy Trust. Built by Francis S. Kinney in 1899 in the East Indian style to hold parties for his daughter, Frances, and to hold post-polo event parties. The Chase/Ewing family owned it for many years and it was the site of numerous dances and celebrations. Major restoration work was completed in 2002. In addition to the farmstand run by Sunset Farm, it is also used for weddings and other public events.
