Arnold House education programs awarded a grant from Rhode Island Council for the Humanities

Arnold House

Lincoln, R.I. – Historic New England received an $8,500 grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities to fund Colonial Times education programs at the 1693 Arnold House.

Colonial Times immerses students in early local history in an authentic seventeenth-century setting. The program combines classroom activities with a field trip and lets students explore history through hands-on activities including candle-making, writing, spinning and weaving, food preservation, and bartering.

Historic New England has been presenting exceptional school and youth programs for thirty years. These programs have earned national attention for their innovative use of historical resources to reinforce and enrich school curricula. In 2014 Historic New England served more than 49,000 students from 192 communities.

The Rhode Island Council for the Humanities is an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities that seeds, supports, and strengthens public history, cultural heritage, civic education, and community engagement by and for all Rhode Islanders.
