Working to Save Open Space

North Kingstown is a place of open spaces, abundant wildlife and natural beauty, a rapidly disappearing heritage. Our strong economy, natural environments and preferred location have attracted substantial development.

Freeborn Farm

Local citizens formed the LCNK in 1988 to encourage preservation of the
