The People's Museum

Out Now

The century-old Westerly Armory is a tribute to Rhode Island's military history - one of 18 historic armories spread across the state. But over the past three decades one of the town's native daughters has worked to transform it into a place where locals and visitors can learn about the community's history as well. This month Jim Hummel takes us inside the largest gathering spot in South County and explores the rich collection of memorabilia.
