37th Festival of Historic Houses

Saturday, 06/11/2016 – 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Join Us at the 37th Festival of Historic Houses!

The 2016 Festival of Historic Houses showcases contemporary living in historic homes, and will guide attendees through residences in the storied North Benefit Street neighborhood in honor of Providence Preservation Society’s 60th Anniversary in 2016.

The Festival tour provides a rare opportunity to step inside historic properties on North Benefit Street and learn about their origins and inhabitants while viewing firsthand the modern day living spaces in these prized, preserved buildings.

Participants will enjoy seeing late-colonial-era and early Federal-style architecture, as well as late 18th century and early 19th century architectural features and trim, Victorian design elements, and Colonial Revival additions.

The Festival will feature over a dozen homes and gardens that will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., as well as guided tours of the neighborhood. For more details, and to purchase tickets, visit
