Historic Odds, Ends, and Other Curiosities
A new exhibit at the Rhode Island State Archives offers the public a unique opportunity to view remarkable and curious items spanning hundreds of years of our state's history. These items range from examples of colonial money, both authentic and counterfeit, to records of piracy trials, and even H.P. Lovecraft's death certificate.
This free exhibit runs through August 31, 2015. The Rhode Island State Archives is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 4:30 at 337 Westminster Street in downtown Providence. Validated parking available adjacent to the building at InTown Parking.
