AFGS Building Added to National Register of Historic Places
The Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission has announced that the National Park Service has added the former First Universalist Church, now the American-French Genealogical Society’s Franco-American Heritage Center, to the National Register of Historic Places.
The National Register is the Federal Government’s official list of properties throughout the United States whose historical and architectural significance makes them worthy of preservation. The church sold the property to the AFGS in 2007.
