Join us, Thursday, November 16 for a Humanities Happy Hour at The Atrium at Rising Sun Mills to celebrate the launch of our new Rhode Tour: Industrial Heritage Along the Woonasquatucket featuring Rising Sun Mills and other iconic sites that tell a compelling story about Rhode Island’s environment, economy, and adaptive re-use of historic structures.
Jane Gerdard, historian and content developer for the Industrial Heritage Rhode Tour, and Howie Sneider, Executive Director of The Steel Yard, will offer brief remarks.
Meet members of Rhode Island’s vibrant humanities and professional communities, and enjoy lively conversation about history and placemaking over light refreshments and cash bar by Easy Entertaining.
This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Free parking available on site. Registration is limited. Please RSVP today!
We are grateful to our generous sponsor: The Armory Revival Company
