JAMESTOWN – Rosemary Enright and Sue Maden sit in the Jamestown Museum, built in 1885-86 and talk about their passions: history. Both active in the Jamestown Historical Society, they’re showing off the latest example of their mission to tell the story of this special place – a handsome, recently-published book titled JAMESTOWN: A History of Narragansett Bay’s Island Town. The two women have collaborated on a number of projects; both write and Rosemary also edits. Their combined works include a Jamestown Windmill booklet, a Newport history, the books Keepers of the Dutch Light and The Jamestown Bridge, 1940-2007: Concept to Demolition. For more on this story, pick up a copy of this week's Standard Times.
