The Larchmont Remembered: Rhode Island’s Most Horrific Sea Disaster

The Larchmont

Join Providence Journal columnist Daniel F. Harrington for a talk on the 1907 sinking of the Larchmont, a passenger ship voyaging to New York on Tuesday, July 16 at 7 p.m.

 

Discover the night when the Larchmont, a side-wheel steamship, collided with the Harry Knowlton, a three-masted schooner, off Block Island in zero-degree weather. Learn about the ship, its crew, the passengers, and hear stories of panic, murder, and survival based on eyewitness accounts.

 

Warwick resident Daniel Harrington is a former East Providence City Councilor, long-time monthly columnist for the Providence Journal, and the Director of the Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame.

 

This event is free and open to all.
