The Rockville Church is an ongoing community project.
In 2015, the church went up for sale, we made an offer, and it was accepted. Because of the complicated nature of 150 year old church deeds, we were unable to close on the property until June, 2017. I spent many hours at the town clerk's office, research old, handwritten records and trying to trace the legal ownership of the property from the year it was built, 1844, until now.
We are planning to convert the space into a small home and a community center with community gardens and meeting space. It is also the future home of the Chariho Youth Task Force, a local youth organization focused on public health and drug abuse prevention,
