Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea joins us to explain “Map Night”. Tuesday, April 9th is a one-night-only display of historic maps related to our current Archives exhibition called Waterways: Past and Present.
It runs from 4:30pm to 7:00pm at The Rhode Island State Archives, 337 Westminster Street in Providence.
The Archives has a vast collection of maps, most of which are too large to be shown in our exhibition cases. But on April 9th we’ll have large, restored maps on display – some nearly 200 years old! Map Night is a unique chance for people to see first-hand how the face of Providence has changed over the years.
