House Tours

Opening Day

10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Join us on our first day of the 2020 season for a house tour! The Paine House museum was built about 1690. This makes it the oldest standing structure in Coventry, RI.

We have been lucky to receive a variety of collection items from the local community. Civil War artifacts, Railroad items, kitchen items, furnishings, serve ware, clothing, quilts, sewing patterns, needle work, bicycles, hand tools, instruments and more! We are in the process of recreating a tavern that was once housed in the building and the Barn loom has been set up along with some information on turning raw materials into a finished product.

Tours are $6/adult, $3/child. All proceeds go directly toward the maintenance of the museum, it’s buildings, property, collections and archives. WRICHS is 100% volunteer. Your tour guides, grounds keepers, archivist, etc., all volunteer their time to WRICHS and the Paine House Museum. If you enjoy the property, please consider becoming a member HERE and support our mission to keep local history alive. Free tours!

We are located at 7 Station Street, Coventry, RI. Parking is available in the lot across the street. Please use the cross walk. Access the entrance up the stone stairs and at the back of the house near the well, across from the barn.
