Library Exhibit, Jamestown Souvenirs

Do you save souvenirs from Jamestown events that you have attended? We do!


Our newest exhibit in the Jamestown Library Display Case showcases Jamestown souvenirs over the years.

Some of the items on display are

  • a Beavertail T-shirt designed by an 11-year winner of a 2010 T-shirt design contest,
  • an Ashtray stolen from the Narragansett Cafe (probably from 1940’s), and
  • a Room Key from the Bayview Hotel (built in 1872 and demolished in 1985).

Stop by the Library and visit our Display Case.
