Then & Now: Where We Stayed

This summer’s exhibit in the Jamestown Historical Society museum at 92 Narragansett Avenue is Then & Now: Where We Stayed.  This exhibit will open Memorial Day, 2018.

Then & Now: Where We Stayed looks at the island's past hotels and boarding houses through post cards and photographs in the Society's collection. 

When this exhibit opens on Memorial Day, 2018, come see aspects of Jamestown you may never have known to exist, and challenge your memory with the images we have chosen.

Until then, visit this page often for previews of the exhibit.
