Welcome to the Barrington Preservation Society! We were founded in 1885 as the “Barrington Historic Antiquarian Society” and refounded in 1965 as the “Barrington Preservation Society.” We are the central resource for those with an interest in Barrington, Rhode Island (formerly Barrington, Massachusetts, from 1717 to 1747). Here you will find information about the artifacts and historical collections in our museum; our old-house plaquing program and awards for historic preservation; and our various exhibitions, social and educational events held each year. Please join us and support us as we celebrate, study, and preserve Barrington’s past!
