Notes from the Field: Varnum House Museum

Working on a Saturday morning is not so bad when work consists of visiting a beautiful historic house in East Greenwich, RI.

It is also home to a few pieces that caught my eye.

The interior of the building is as impressive as the exterior, and their extensive collection of South County materials is a must-see for anyone interested in the Hazard family, or in the history of South Kingstown.
