History Space Event – Help Solve an 18th Century Mystery!

February 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

In the 18th century, gently used items were in-demand and, in 1770s Newport, a group of women capitalized on this by orchestrating a theft ring to resell stolen shoes, clothing and household goods. Join the Newport Historical Society’s costumed living historians for this one-of-a-kind History Space event. Step into the 1739 Colony House on Saturday February 25, 2023 from 10am-2pm and help solve the mystery of who stole the many items that are missing from Newport homes!

This interactive event is free and open to the public, donations are welcome.

This programming proudly sponsored by Barrington Arms 302, Hilton Head Island, SC.
