The Roger Williams National Memorial — with its newly installed exhibits illuminating the “new and dangerous opinions” of our founder — will be open from 9am to 5pm, seven days a week, now through the end of the year. Their book shop is excellent with a focus on 17th century New England.
Comment ça va, netop? Roger fans traveling to Switzerland this summer are reminded to check out Reformation Wall. Our guy is one of ten statues honoring the heroes of the Reformation — Calvin, Knox, William the Silent — collect them all!
