Rhode Island

Event: A Mid-Winter Repast
Venue: Clouds Hill Victorian House Museum – Warwick
Date: February 9
Description: Winter is a fact of life in New England and the family was actively engaged with the elements at this time of year – whether it was Alfred Slater Reed, who managed the large dairy farm attached to the estate, helping cut ice on the estate ponds, or Anne Crawford Allen, with skis replacing the front wheels on her automobile, driving R.I. State Police officers to check on the health and safety of backwoods families    Living at the end of unplowed dirt roads – this was a family that gloried in the winter weather.  Join us to enjoy the kind of hearty, stick-to-the-ribs food that kept them going and made dinner time a real treat.
