From February 1-March 4, the public is invited to offer input on the plan by taking a survey, reading the full Management Plan, or attending a virtual information session. Visit the Washington Trust website to find the survey and more.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the National Register process and what designation means for property owners, and to  present early findings of historical census research. An in-depth analysis of census data will be used to reveal a richer story of the ethnic roots and occupations of early Wallingford residents. A second public meeting to unveil the nomination is planned for later this year.
