Historic women from Providence, RI

On my trip to Boston, I detoured to Providence to visit a friend. PVD is a beautiful Rhode Island town with some great architecture and rich history. This episode features historic women from Providence, RI.

In this episode, I talk about Helen Metcalf, one of the founders of Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I also share the story of Mary Dyer, a Quaker martyr. In addition, I talk about Elizabeth Buffum-Chace, an abolitionist and women’s rights advocate. And finally, Christiana Carteux Bannister, abolitionist and founder of the Bannister House.

Salem Massachusetts

While in Boston, I knew that I had to make the trip up to Salem. Did I mention that it was October? So, on a Saturday, in October, I went to Salem. It was rainy and busy. The pics don’t show a lot of people because they were all at the witch museum. After Salem, I headed back into Boston to check out the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
