Visitors of all ages are invited to Linden Place Mansion this March to view a special month-long exhibition recognizing and celebrating sixty women who have made a difference in their communities - Barrington, Bristol, Jamestown, Little Compton, Middletown, Newport, Portsmouth, Tiverton, and Warren.
Sixteen local historical and preservation societies, museums, and libraries have contributed to the exhibit. Come learn about the lives and times of famous lighthouse keeper Ida Lewis, Queen Sachem of the Pocasset’s, Weetamoo, leader in the fight for LGBTQ rights, Julia Pell, artist and suffragette, Sarah J. Eddy, artist and founder of the Mary Tefft White Cultural Center, Happy White, among many others. Banners, with biographies and photographs, alongside artifacts and facsimiles make this a multi-media exhibit.
