1938 Hurricane Online Exhibit
 
Our 1938 Hurricane Exhibit was on display at the East Greenwich Free Library during the month of September 2018. Before we dismantled the exhibit, we photographed everything to share online with those who could not attend. (Please note that this page will only be available for a limited time.)
