RTHS Summer 2017

With our excursion to Wilno behind us we will now focus our thoughts and energy on the Dickinson House events.  The 2017 season is off to a very good start. More than 1,400 people vilsited the house on the Dickinson Days weekend. 

Remember that the displays change year by years and the new "A Walk Through the Decades". display  is featured on the third floor.
