WANTED: MILITARY MEMORABILIA AND DOCUMENTS FOR MILITARY TRIBUTE DISPLAY JUNE-JULY

The Tiverton Historical Society will be paying tribute to our military at the Chace-Cory House from June 14 to July 26 on Sundays from 2 to 4:30 PM.

If anyone has military memorabilia they would like to donate or loan for this special exhibit, please contact Susan Anderson at susan@tivertonhistorical.org or call 401-625-1352. We would also like to have speakers each Sunday on specific military topics/eras. One July Sunday will be a presentation on Tiverton’s Colonel William Barton, and we are hoping for some Tiverton Middle School students presenting their American Revolution personages in June, but we are open for other presentations or panelists, if a group wants to talk about their experiences. Please contact Susan if you are interested in presenting.

Those that walk through Weetamoo Woods – or would like to start but don’t know where, you can purchase our own A School Guide to Weetamoo Woods, that relates the history and flora along trails within the woods. If you want this book or some of our Tiverton-related items for gifts during the time when we are closed, you may purchase them at the Mill Pond Shops. (Check the THS Marketplace page for details)

Remember, all purchases and donations to the Tiverton Historical Society are tax-deductible!

We invite you to visit the historical Chace-Cory House, located at 3908 Main Road at Tiverton Four Corners in the small town of Tiverton, Rhode Island, the smallest state in the USA. The museum house is open for tours from 2-4:30 PM on Sunday during the months of June to September (or by appointment) and is the headquarters of the Tiverton Historical Society. We sponsor a number of events throughout the year and welcome you to participate in them. In order to keep the roof over our head maintained, we need to charge a small fee for tours. Admission is free to Tiverton Historical Society (THS) members and children under 12 years, $3 for non-members, and $2 for students and seniors (55 years+). Directions
