Celebrate the reopening of the historic Holmes/Watson Boatshop in Kingston, Massachusetts. Purchased for preservation by the non-profit Jones River Landing in 2008, the restoration of this important piece of Kingston’s boatbuilding history has just been completed with the help of Community Preservation funding.

Stop by the newly restored building to see how the boatshops that dotted the Jones River in the 1870s and ‘80s looked and operated. Light refreshments will be served. The Holmes/Watson Boatyard is located on Landing Road just upriver from Jones River Landing. Volunteers needed.
