Remember a special time in a special place, wearing a keepsake Jamestown wax seal necklace pendant, or Conanicut Island wax seal necklace, the actual name for the island.
- symbolism -
Conanicut Island is the second largest island in Narragansett Bay. At one time, the only way to visit Conanicut Island was by boat but as early as 1675 ferries operated between Newport, RI and Conanicut Island. In 1678, the island was incorporated as the town of Jamestown in Rhode Island. It was named for James, Duke of York, who became King James II in 1685. By 1940, one could cross the water to Jamestown, from North Kingstown, by bridge and in 1969, a bridge was completed to cross to Newport, eliminating the use of ferries.
Rich in both history and beauty, about 5,400 lucky people call Jamestown home!
