Witness Tree Project Tours

Martvin Van Buren National Historic Site and The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), have partnered together to present The Witness Tree Project in Lindenwald. In the winter of 2011, a white mulberry tree just south of Lindenwald, fell. This spring RISD students enrolled in a joint history seminar and furniture design studio. The project for the class was to create art pieces, which represented Van Buren and his life during the Antebellum Period.

On Saturday's at 9:30, now until August 29th, there will be a special tour through Lindenwald focusing solely on the Witness Tree Project.
