Block Island Historical Society reviews
we did one of the guided tours and it was amazing. We also stopped to see the fish tanks and the kids loved it. The other activities look so interesting, I wish we had done more.
It is a nice building with preserved artifacts. What I found the most The most interesting was, how the water levels have raised and reformed the Rhode Island - Block island area.
