Farnumsville Engine House

Twenty years of preservation activities at Farnumsville’s historic Blackstone Engine House #3 have not gone unnoticed.  The restored circa 1853 building and the efforts of South Grafton’s Skip Michniewicz are featured in the latest edition of “Along The Blackstone,” the award winning cable television series produced by National Parks Service Ranger Chuck Arning of the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor.

Look for the new edition of "Along The Blackstone" entitled "Preservation Passion" with a feature segment on Grafton's Farnumsville Firehouse - to be aired on Grafton Community Television Channel 11 starting next week - the week beginning Monday, August 20th.

According to Ranger Arning, “Throughout the Blackstone River Valley we see first hand the tremendous challenge of keeping historic landscapes intact. We might be overwhelmed by the shear scope of some of these preservation projects. But rather than being overwhelmed, I think you’ll be inspired by three similar, but quite different stories of people who made a difference in taking on major preservation projects in their home town.”
