About the Rhode Island Historical Society

Founded in 1822, the RIHS, a Smithsonian Affiliate, is the fourth-oldest historical society in the United States and is Rhode Island’s largest and oldest historical organization. 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 Coast Guard officer accused of plotting a massive domestic terror attack will stay in jail for at least two weeks while federal prosecutors build their case. The government will use the time to find evidence showing Christopher Hasson's intent to harm prominent Democrats and journalists. Hasson was arrested last week.        President Trump is going after Empire actor Jussie Smollett [[ SMUH- let ]]. Trump tweeted yesterday that Smollett had insulted tens of millions of people with "racist and dangerous comments." Chicago Police say Smollett lied about being attacked by two white men in masks, wearing pro-Trump hats, hurling racist and homophobic slurs.        A federal judge is imposing a full gag order on longtime Trump ally Roger Stone. Judge Amy Berman Jackson told Stone yesterday not to make any public comments, including social media posts, about his case or Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Stone apologized to the judge for posting an Instagram picture of her with an image of crosshairs above her head. Stone is charged with witness tampering, obstruction of justice, and making false statements to Congress.        The CEO of the Time's Up movement is resigning after sexual assault allegations were made against her son. CEO Lisa Borders announced earlier this week that she would be resigning from the organization Time's Up was formed last year to fight sexual assault and harassment in the workplace.        The state of New Jersey is celebrating native son Anthony Bourdain. The New Jersey Assembly approved the Anthony Bourdain Food Trail in the celebrity chef's honor. Bourdain committed suicide last year.       A valuable and illegal donation to a children's charity in Missouri is going up in smoke. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks said in its recent newsletter that last year, someone donated a brick of marijuana that Springfield Police said had a street value of three-thousand-dollars.
