EG Historic Preservation Society Virtual Meeting – “This Old House: What Were We Thinking?” When Deb and John Walsh first saw Rose Cottage, it had been on the market for two years. Even though the 19th century Italianate building needed lots of basic upgrades, they fell in love with the glassed-in cupola, the high ceilings and its potential. What could go wrong? The couple will share the perils and pleasures of taking on a historic home – this one located in the Hill district of East Greenwich. This free Zoom program is sponsored by the East Greenwich Historic Preservation Society. Join us at 7:30 p.m. for the big reveal. To register go to [email protected].
