Our summer exhibit at the museum will be previewed at the Memorial Day parade on May 31. “Jamestowners & Their Military Neighbors” builds on last year’s exhibit about Jamestown’s forts. While the forts are places that permanently occupy our landscape, the people that they and other military activities –such as the Torpedo Station on Goat Island and the fleet in the bay –brought to our island have also had a lasting effect.
