Open Through December 2018:
"Resilient Rhode Island: Disasters & Determination in the Ocean State"

Shipwrecks!  Fires!  Hurricanes!  Resilient Rhode Islanders have persevered through numerous natural and man-made disasters.  Plan to visit the Center to see archival materials and artifacts representing just a few of these challenging events.

This exhibit is presented as part of the Center's 2018 series "Resilient Rhode Island: Disasters & Determination in the Ocean State."  The series is made possible by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  The Rhode Island Council for the Humanities seeds, supports and strengthens public history, cultural heritage, civic education and community engagement by and for all Rhode Islanders.
