Herreshoff Museum
Narragansett Bay

The Herreshoff Museum is one of Bristol's crown jewels as far as this photographer, carpenter and boat enthusiast is concerned.  It showcases decades of worldclass boat design and building as well as telling the story of the 2 brothers whose remarkable talents and teamwork made it all possible.  Inside the museum are dozens upon dozens of restored boats that should make any person capable of appreciating fine craftsmanship feel at home.  If you're lucky you might meet Halsey Herreshoff, direct descendant of the famous brothers who still sails his classic yacht to victory in regattas up and down the Atlantic coast.  It's not to be missed!

More About Narragansett Bay

Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities.  It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet.  Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life.  The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation.  Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact.  Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
