Rhode Island Foundation: Christine A. Nowak Fund for the Blackstone Valley Historic Society

In 2012, a legacy from Christine Nowak, a former president of the BVHS, allowed us to establish a small organizational endowment in the Rhode Island Foundation.

You can donate to the Christine Nowak fund by going to the Rhode Island Foundation Donation page and choosing “Contribute to a specific fund”   Search for “Christine Nowak.”

  1. I am originally from Valley Falls (St. Patrick Parish) and now live in New Britain, CT. I heard recently that the “historical society” was trying to save the historic St. Patrick’s building- which predates even the Diocese of Providence and is the oldest parish in Cumberland..
    Would you be the group that is trying to save the church? If so, can you give me any information on what is/has been done and if there is any way that I can help. It is a shame to destroy such a beautiful and historic building which has been a part of the town for over 150 years.
