The Armenian Historical Association of Rhode Island was formed to exhibit permanent and temporary exhibitions and artifacts, books, periodicals, newspapers, photographs and historical tapes. This Armenian exhibition will be dedicated to and focus on those immigrants and refugees who settled in Rhode Island and contributed directly to their new country and state.
Their legacy is an inspiration to all those descendants who followed, and It is this organization’s focus to educate future generations in the ways that these early Armenian Americans enriched their new home and new identity with their ethnic heritage.
The main objective of AHARI was to establish a vital avenue of information for for the descendants of those early pioneers.
AHARI is proud to introduce our association’s new logo. The use of the Armenian letter “A” melding into the American letter “A” symbolizes the linking of the past to the present.
