Original Roger Williams Letter On Display

Roger Williams(3.19) Catch the third of five letters written in Roger Williams’ own hand at the Roger Williams National Memorial tomorrow night. RWMN staff collaborated with the RI Historical Society to connect visitors with history via five letters displayed over five months. In this letter, Rog (as I affectionately call him) is trying to resolve conflicts in then-just-a-town Providence while living in England. Enjoy some coffee while you ask knowledgeable Ranger John McNiff for details; he’ll probably know what Rog ate for breakfast that day.

Free, 4pm to 8pm, Thursday, March 19, Roger Williams National Memorial, 282 N. Main Street, Providence
