"The Smith-Appleby House dates to circa 1696. This delicately restored and furnished farm house features beautiful cabinet work, stenciled walls, and other intriguing architectural details. A unique feature is the smoke room on the second floor — serviced by the huge fireplace in the keeping room. The house is on the National Register of Historic Places and has received the “Footprints in History” Award from the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council. "

"Pomham Rocks Lighthouse sits on a small island just off the coast of East Providence Rhode Island. It began service December 1, 1871 with a sixth order Fresnel lens showing a fixed white light. A mere ten months later on October 1, 1872 this characteristic was changed to fixed red. A fog siren, installed in 1900, was referred to by a local newspaper as `the greatest nuisance in the state` before it was replaced by a fog bell three years later. The light remained operational until it was decommissioned in 1974 when the US Coast Guard replaced it with one on a newly erected skeleton tower."

"Triggs Memorial Golf Course was conceived by Ross in the early 1930's and opened in the spring of 1932. As is typical of many Ross designs, Triggs Memorial is considered an exceptional layout featuring long difficult par 4's, "reachable" par 5's, and spectacular par 3's. The design follows the natural contours of the site with moderate and relatively gentle changes in elevation and small strategically bunkered greens."
