Have you noticed the numerous stone walls around Rhode Island?  Who built them and why?  Robin Spears & Sons Masonry, of the Narragansett Tribe, will be on site building a traditional stone wall in front of the Museum.  Stop by to find out more about the art and traditions of early Rhode Island stone walls, and visit the Museum’s newest exhibit celebrating Providence’s 375th, Customes, Manners, Worships: Rhode Island Begins.

This event is part of an exhibit and lecture series co-sponsored by the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology at Brown University celebrating the 375th Anniversary of the founding of Providence. Programs are co-sponsored by the RI Historical Society and the Haffenreffer Museum and are linked to the Museum’s exhibition “Customes, Manners, and Worships: Rhode Island Begins.”
