East Greenwich is Rhode Island's 8th oldest town. Originally an important summer settlement for the Narragansett Indians, East Greenwich was officialy incorporated in 1677. The town played a significant role in Rhode Island's early history due to its excellent harbor and access to the primary trail through the state (Post Road). This cache will lead you to a handful of sites of historic interest within the "Hill and Harbor," Main Street, and King Street districts of East Greenwich.
The terrain is rated at a 1.5 because the hill down to Main Street is fairly steep and could pose trouble for wheelchair cachers. In addition, stages 6 and 7 require climbing a couple of stairs. Wheelchair cachers could easily perform this cache with assistance. Stages 1 and 2 are not particularly snow friendly, but you could possibly brush the snow off the tablets to find the necessary information.
Best parking is found along Peirce Street, perhaps even right next to Stage 1. Additional parking can be found in the lot behind St. Luke's Church.
