Have you ever visited St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Smith Hill? Not me. . .yet. Established in 1843, this is one of the state’s oldest Roman Catholic cemeteries in Rhode Island. Let’s explore it together, walking and talking about memory and meaning in the urban landscape. This program is also part of the Rhode Island Cemetery Weeks calendar.
