Please get in touch if you’re interested in a tour, have questions about Block Island history, want to order something from our shop, or have artifacts you think we would be interested in!

We accept donations of photographs, ephemera, and other objects related to the history of Block Island. We can also scan your family photos of Block Island. We are currently particularly interested in images from the 1950s–1970s.
