Located on the slopes of Providence's College Hill, the Rhode Island
Historical Society's John Brown House Museum is a "must-see" stop
on Gallery Night. Built in 1786-8 and enlarged and embellished by
subsequent owners, this grand mansion not only features incomparable
architecture and extraordinary decorative arts but also tells the
compelling stories of the generations of Browns and others who lived
and worked there during three centuries.
Founded in 1822, the Rhode Island Historical Society
is the nation's fourth oldest state historical society and is today
the steward of some 30,000 artifacts and 500,000 library items.
The Society maintains its research library and John Brown House
Museum in Providence and operates the Museum of Work & Culture
in Woonsocket. The Society's ongoing public and educational programming
includes publication of the historical journal Rhode Island History
and the presentation of exhibitions, lectures, workshops, and tours.
