United States Senator Visits Tomaquag Museum

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

Tomaquag Museum was honored on Tuesday June 30th with a visit from United States Senator, Sheldon Whitehouse. (D-RI).   The visit included a tour of our Museum, exploring many different exhibits, such as traditional fingerweaving, an explaination of Wampum as one of America's first currencies, and the early writings of Princess Red Wing, one of Tomaquag Museum's original founding members.

The visit also gave us the opportunity to present our future home master plan for the Tomaquag Museum/Westerly Land Trust Visitor Center.  This overview was presented by Megan Moynihan, of the Rhode Island based architectural firm "Oysterworks".  The master plan includes a 1600 square foot gallery space, outdoor Amphitheater and walking trails. 

The visit concluded with a light lunch of traditional succotash and cornbread, and great conversation!  "The visit was very productive" said Lorén Spears, Tomaquag's Executive Director. "The Senator was impressed with the amount of information available  and exhibits in our little museum. We plan to hold  more meetings in the future"
