Looking at Providence’s Past and Present at “Map Night”

The Rhode Show
The Rhode Show Staycation

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.
