April Update
Dear Friends,

Most things in our daily routine have changed in the past few weeks but Lippitt House Museum staff are dedicated to preserving this National Historic Landmark and sharing its history with our community – near and far. Even though there are no public programs in April we’re still working behind the scenes. Museum staff continue to perform routine maintenance on the house as well as plan future capital restoration projects to protect this important piece of Rhode Island history.

We are also developing new web-based ways to share the stories of the people connected to Lippitt House. This year is the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment which stated a person’s right to vote can’t be denied because of sex. To mark this important step towards universal suffrage, we are working with a Public Humanities Class at Brown University to create an interactive timeline for the museum’s website that explores the gradual expansion of voting rights in Rhode Island from the colonial era through the 20th century. Because Lippitt family members, both male and female, played prominent roles in civic life this is a great opportunity to share some of those stories and explore their impact on Rhode Island.

We’d love to hear from you even if we can’t gather in person. Please like and follow us on our social media platforms and we’ll continue to share our work and would love to hear from you.

Best Regards,
Carrie Taylor
