“John Brown, come on down!”

The Rhode Island Historical Society maintains two museums, both located in historic structures in Rhode Island. The John Brown House Museum, the premier 18th century house and museum in the state, presents important aspects of the social and cultural history of the period when our country was new. It is located at 52 Power Street in Providence. For more information about our school tours, which cover topics such as the slave trade, the China trade, the War for Independence, and women's history in the 18th and 19th centuries, please select the link in the menu to the left. The Museum of Work & Culture, located at 42 South Main Street in Woonsocket, shares the stories of men, women, and children who came to Rhode Island in the late 19th and 20th centuries. Why did they come? What did they do when they got here? Who helped them along the way? The stories of French Canadian immigrants provide the voice for these universal struggles of all immigrants to America. Our new permanent exhibit, Going to Work: Twentieth Century Settlers to the Blackstone Valley, brings new voices and faces to the museum and this site. Please just us in adding your stories and sharing your families' history. To see more about visiting the Museum of Work & Culture, select the link in the menu to the left.
