Aldrich House

An Elegant Setting for Receptions & Special Events


Vote for Aldrich House in the 2017 Wedding Spot Awards!


Are you planning a wedding, reception, office party, or business meeting? The Aldrich House is an ideal location for an unforgettable event.

We are located on the beautiful and historic East Side of Providence. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Aldrich House was presented to the Rhode Island Historical Society in 1974 by the heirs of Winthrop W. Aldrich, a former Ambassador to Great Britain.

A reception area serves as the foyer entrance to the cozy 800-square-foot ballroom, and our four French doors open to large and beautifully landscaped grounds.

Discounted rates are available to Rhode Island Historical Society Members.

Outside rentals and wedding photography considered. For more information or a personal tour with Rental Manager Renata Luongo, please call 401-331-8575 x 149 or email

You can find a portfolio of Aldrich House photos, as well as venue reviews at Wedding Wire and The Knot. View an Aldrich House wedding featured at Borrowed and Blue.
