The EPHS has the distinct honor of presenting East Providence’s own Onna Moniz-John and her unequaled collection of local and national Black heritage artifacts. The Hunt house showcases her favorite pieces and the Educational Center houses a very special exhibit of local Black men and women who served in the military from the Revolutionary War through the Vietnam War. The exhibit opens on July 14 but we also invite the public to join us for an Opening Reception honoring On-na’s work on August 11, commemorating both the 80th anniversary of D-Day and Victory Day, August 12. Come and share your stories.
Hunt’s Mills is a family picnic area with walking trails along the 10 Mile River, his-torical buildings and a community garden starting to hit its stride. Its history is an-cient, from Indigenous peoples who fished the falls and planted 3 Sister gardens to the present peoples who honor the memory of all who have lived here.

Upcoming: Moniz-John Exhibit Opening Reception : August 11 - 1:30pm
