About the Exhibit

The Roger Williams National Memorial is a National Parks Service-operated public space and monument located at the foot of College Hill in Providence, Rhode Island. This digital exhibit seeks to explore the evolution of the ground on which it sits from the founding of the city to the present day. As a resource, the exhibit can be used by researchers, artists, or anyone who looks to engage with the space of the memorial.


This exhibit was created by Jeremy Wolin, a third-year dual degree student at Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design, as a final project for AMST 2630: Public Amnesias and Their Discontents: Theories and Practices of Remembering and Forgetting, in spring 2017.
