Join the Rhode Island Historical Society and Hard Pressed Cider Company on Sunday, October 30 at 4 p.m. at Windmist Farm in Jamestown for the continuation of Drink in the History, a yearlong series pairing RI beverages with history talks.
Hard Pressed Cider Company co-founders Rob & Jaclyn Swanson will discuss the history of donuts and apple cider, and the process for creating their products. Guests will have the opportunity to sample cold or warm cider, and freshly made apple cider donuts.
The event will also include a presentation by Ethan Kincaid, who has been metal detecting on Conanicut Island for many years. Kincaid will discuss his findings from across the island, including materials dating from the American Revolution.
Drink in the History is part of the Rhode Island Historical Society’s Bicentennial Celebrations, sponsored by Amica Insurance.
