EAST GREENWICH â€“ Some museum curators and caretakers exhibit living history. Tony Amaral lives amidst history.
Amaral, 41, a Taunton, Mass. native and Adams State College grad, is a former self-employed painter who is the new business manager and caretaker of the Varnum Memorial Armory. He lives in the caretakerâ€™s apartment within the building itself and often has to open his room to cater to guests renting the space for parties.
Amaral replaces longtime watchman Jim Wilson who took care of the venerable place for a quarter century.
