Meet Sam Williams, a Local Artisan

Meet local artisan Sam Williams, age 83, when you plan a visit to Vincennes! Sam, the oldest of 12 children, learned to make rosaries at St. Meinrads, an area Benedictine monastery. After a life running a lawn mower shop and truck driving, he’s he finds peace creating and repairing rosaries. His rosaries have gone around the world, most recently to India and Ukraine. For a fun and touching story, ask Sam about repairing a rosary that had gone through a vacuum cleaner! Sam often works out of The Open Gallery at 329 Main Street, however, winter hours vary. He’s available by appointment at 812-887-2014.
