Children of the 18th century played with dolls they made from corn husks. 

Using a Penobscot Native American design, you can create your own corn husk dolls. 

A short time to make, but a charming memory that will last a lifetime.

After you have finished your doll, please enjoy a tour of the Smith-Appleby House Museum.

On your tour, see the “Footsteps in History” Quilt. 

The quilt was created when each of the 24 towns in the Blackstone Valley was asked to contribute a fabric square depicting their town. The squares were joined together to make a quilt. The quilt is visiting each town to celebrate how everyone came together to make the Valley a better place.

Admission & tour: $5 for adults, children are free.

This very special event is part of our Rhody Ramble Open House series.
