What a neat little museum! I was in RI for a meeting and, as I was driving home, saw a sign for this museum. The name interested me, so I took the exit and made a visit. So glad I did! I learned so much about the culture of RI and the workers who came from other countries to work in the mills. There are really beautiful and well done recreations of a school room, a house and the inside of a church. Make time for a visit, you'll be so happy you did! Also, the young lady at the front desk was very informative and passionate about the place!
What a cool place. No idea that Woonsocket was by far a majority French Canadian city up until at least the 50's. According to the woman at the desk, older folks still speak French with one another..
