We regret that this event is fully committed. We hope to welcome you for other special events as we celebrate the 125th year of Weekapaug Inn.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Weekapaug began to develop as a summer resort destination. Families from nearby cities such as Providence and New York built summer cottages and large, shingle-style homes along the coastline. The construction of these seasonal residences marked the transformation of Weekapaug from a sleepy agricultural community into a fashionable seaside retreat. Weekapaug’s history is a testament to the resilience and spirit of its residents, who have weathered storms and changes while maintaining a deep connection to their coastal heritage.

Enjoy wine and desserts as Mr. Boll presents the history of Weekapaug, covering its transformation from an initial farming community until 1938.

This is a complimentary event, but reservations strongly recommended.
