The Tragic Story of An Elephant That Led to One of Rhode Island’s Strangest Memorials

Rhode Island sure does have a lot of strange history! From comic to tragic, our little state has been through so much during its existence, and luckily, there are ways to honor that history all over little Rhody. You can visit parks, museums, memorials, or even see plays about everything that the smallest state has seen since becoming one of the original colonies. Here is a memorial we think even some of the most knowledgeable locals may not know about.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

This is such a sad story, and gives us a lot to reflect on when it comes to the religious past of Rhode Island. Will you be visiting the memorial to Betty the Learned elephant sometime soon?
