The Blackstone River as Never Seen Before, November 20th, 2:00 P.M. North Gate Toll House, 1873 Old Louisquiss­et Pike (Route 246), Lincoln. The Blackstone River is the reason we are all here. It has been a lifeline to persons through the centuries, from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution to a beautiful part of our heritage. As time has gone by, there have been a lot of changes to the River, brought on mainly by humans, who used it as a dumping ground for hundreds of years. But, now, it is returning to its original beauty, and John Marsland will show the River throughout the course of a year. In Kittacuck Speaks, he will take us on a tour of the majestic Blackstone River through the seasons, showing it as it has never been seen before: from above. Kittacuck Speaks is a product of the Friends of the Blackstone, together with the RI Rivers Council. The name translates to “the great tidal river.” It is truly a magnificen­t part of all of us.
