Colonial Clean Sweep: A Newport Historical Society History Space Event

June 12 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

$3 – $5

Before the “Dawn” of “Mr. Clean” and “Mrs. Meyers”, residents in colonial Newport employed a wide variety of techniques to clean their homes. This History Space program showcases cleaning techniques such as sun bleaching fabric, scrubbing brushes, and even simple sweeping to show how cleaning techniques from the past both differ and compare with the present day.

This program takes place at the Wanton-Lyman-Hazard House, 17 Broadway, Newport, RI. Admission costs $5 per person, $4 for NHS members and military, and $3 for children ages 5-12. A combo ticket is available that includes admission for this program and the Legends & Lore tour which costs $18 per person, $12 for NHS members and military, and $6 for children ages 5-12.
