Map & Directions

The tour to Clyde's Cider Mill will depart from the gazebo in front of the North Scituate (RI) elementary school, 606 W Greenville Rd, North Scituate, RI 02857 (Route 116). We will start to congregate around 10AM and plan to shove off at 10:30 for an hour and 15 minute drive to the mill. CT Chapter members will meet us at the mill but are welcome to join the tour along the way.

We plan to arrive at the mill before noon. This will give us ample time to check out their fine bakery as well as sample the various hard ciders. At 1 PM, a live demonstration of one of the only steam powered apple presses in existence will start — pretty amazing and fun to watch! Clyde's Cider Mill is a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark.

Shortly after the demonstration, we will saddle up for a one-hour drive to Westerly, with a quick loop through the quaint seaside village of Watch Hill. Heading back into Westerly, we will stop for lunch at The Haversham Tavern, 336 Post Road, Westerly, RI (providing everyone is not full from apple cider donuts)!

Please make sure that your fuel tanks are topped off before getting to the gazebo. There is a coffee shop a block away for a quick pit stop before we depart.
