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. While we get to visit many historic house museums as part of the RHODI Project, the Varnum House stands out because of its bright, open, airy feeling, in addition to its unique history. It is also home to a few pieces that caught my eye.

Notes from the Field: Peace Dale Library

Built in 1891 as a memorial to Rowland Hazard, the Richardsonian Romanesque Hazard Memorial Building has stood watch over the village of Peace Dale for over a century. 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.

Notes from the Field: Clouds Hill House Museum

High atop a beautiful hill in Warwick, RI, sits the Clouds Hill House Museum, perched in all its stoic glory among luscious gardens and shady trees, harkening from something out of a children’s storybook. The long, winding driveway up the hill only reveals the first glimpse of the house upon its final bend, and in June, one can’t help but be struck by the beauty of huge, white porch curtains, blowing freely in the wind.

Notes from the Field: Gilbert Stuart Birthplace & Museum

The Gilbert Stuart Birthplace and Museum, located in Saunderstown RI, is a fascinating place dedicated to the life and portraits of Gilbert Stuart. In addition to Stuart, the museum also contains a vital glimpse at early industry in Rhode Island, as they have two working water powered mills. Both mills date from the 1700′s and one was used to grind whitecap flint corn into corn meal. Today the museum runs demonstrations of this mill several times a year.
