The Rhode Island Historical Society, the state's oldest and only statewide historical organization, is dedicated to honoring, interpreting and sharing Rhode Island's past to enrich the present and inspire the future. Founded in 1822, the RIHS is an advocate for history as a means to develop empathy and 21st -century skills, using its historical materials and knowledge to explore topics of timeless relevance and public interest. As a Smithsonian Affiliate, it is dedicated to providing high-quality, accessible public programming and educational opportunities for all Rhode Islanders through its four sites: the John Brown House Museum, the Museum of Work & Culture, the Mary Elizabeth Robinson Research Center and the Aldrich House.
The Museum of Work & Culture, a division of the Rhode Island Historical Society, is excited to announce Tuesday Tea Time Talks, a casual, conversational program, where participants will learn about one of the Museum’s permanent exhibits and have the opportunity to share their personal stories.
The first program will be hosted on Tuesday, November 14 at 1:30 p.m. and will focus on the mill floor exhibit. Whether you have worked in a mill or remember stories from family members who did, you will have a chance to share anecdotes during this exciting gathering. All are welcome and encouraged to bring photographs and other documents that will help illustrate your stories.
Cookies and tea will be served, and admission is free. Registration is not required but encouraged. Please call 401-769-965 or register online at rihs.org.
