SOLD OUT! Explore Rhode Island’s State Rock

This event is SOLD OUT!

Due to the incredible interest in this program, we have surpassed the capacity of this site.

The 2:00 PM tour is full. We cannot safely accommodate any additional groups or individuals at the cemetery for that tour. 

 

 

Every rock has a story to tell. Join us as we uncover the stories of Cumberlandite, the State Rock of Rhode Island. Volunteer Mark Dennen and Park Ranger Allison Horrocks will be showing us this unique rock outcropping from a geological and historical lens. We will be meeting at the Elder Ballou Cemetery in Cumberland and walking to the Cumberlandite Site, the only outcropping of Cumberlandite.
This program will be approximately 1 mile of walking on uneven terrain.

Please contact mcardoza@blackstoneheritagecorridor.org for cancellation information due to weather.
