About the Museum of Work & Culture

 

The interactive and educational Museum of Work & Culture shares the stories of the men, women, and children who came to find a better life in Rhode Island’s mill towns in the late 19th- and 20th centuries. It recently received a Rhode Island Monthly Best of Rhode Island Award for its SensAbilities Saturdays all-ability program.

 

 

 

About the Rhode Island Historical Society

 

Founded in 1822, the RIHS is the fourth-oldest historical society in the United States and is Rhode Island’s largest and oldest historical organization, as well as its only Smithsonian Affiliate. In Providence, the RIHS owns and operates the John Brown House Museum, a designated National Historic Landmark, built in 1788; the Aldrich House, built in 1822 and used for administration and public programs; and the Mary Elizabeth Robinson Research Center, where archival, book and image collections are housed. In Woonsocket, the RIHS manages the Museum of Work and Culture, a community museum examining the industrial history of northern Rhode Island and of the workers and settlers, especially French-Canadians, who made it one of the state’s most distinctive areas.

 

 

 

 

 

The suspect in the deadly attack at a Tennessee Waffle House is in custody. The Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted: "Murder suspect Travis Reinking is in custody. Arrested moments ago." Police say Reinking shot and killed four people at a Waffle House on Sunday.        French President Emmanuel Macron [[ mah-CRONE ]] and his wife are in Washington, D.C. The Macrons will tour historic Mount Vernon, Virginia with the President and First Lady Melania Trump this evening. They will also have dinner at George Washington's estate. Tomorrow marks the start of an official state visit as the Macrons get a formal greeting at the White House.        Senator Joe Manchin says he will vote for CIA Director Mike Pompeo [[ pom-PAY-oh ]] to be the next secretary of state. The West Virginia Democrat tweeted today that he met with Pompeo and is impressed with the CIA director's "exemplary career in public service." Manchin is the second red state Democrat to support Pompeo.        Mitt Romney will have to face an opponent in a June primary election after failing to win the Utah Republican Party's nomination to replace outgoing U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch. The former Massachusetts governor and 2012 GOP presidential nominee was unable to win 60 percent of the vote Saturday at the state Republican convention. He will face Utah state representative Mike Kennedy in a primary on June 26th.        Four people are injured after tornadoes and severe winds ripped through an RV park in southern Alabama. The National Weather Service says two tornadoes were tracked in Baldwin County yesterday. One caused widespread damage after it overturned five RVs about 20 miles southeast of Mobile. The tornado is part of a severe weather system that will hit the Southeast with heavy rain through the early part of this week.        "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is now on Broadway. The "New York Post" said they'd never seen anything quite like it, calling it Broadway magic. While the "New York Times" said the more-than-five-hour-long show, which is presented in two parts, is now the gold standard for fantasy franchise entertainment.
