Exploring the Dr. Isaac Fiske House: A Fall River Underground Railroad Site

Through Roger Williams University’s Community Partnerships Center, the Preservation Society of Fall River and students in Associate Professor of History Dr. Charlotte Carrington-Farmer’s class spent the Fall 2022 semester exploring the c. 1833 Dr. Isaac Fiske House together.

By scouring old newspapers and going on research trips to Fall River, students Kristen Black and TJ Ward learned some of the stories from the home at 263 Pine Street and the family that lived within.

The Preservation Society and Roger Williams University invites members of the community to learn some of the history behind one of Fall River’s Underground Railroad sites.

Please join us at the Fall River Public Library Meeting Room at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 30, for a presentation on some of the research conducted by students to learn more about Fall River’s role in assisting freedom seekers on their journey north.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating will be limited and is available on a first come first serve basis.
