Walking Tours

Join us in 2016 for walking tours of the storied streets of Providence!


Benefit Street: A Mile of History

June 15-October 31: Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00am

Adults: $15, Seniors: $12, RIHS Members & Students: $10, Children 8 and under: Free

Begin: John Brown House Museum, 52 Power Street

Created in the mid-18th century “for the benefit of all,” this colonial thoroughfare shows off an enviable collection of 18th and 19th century wood-frame houses. Although the street gives the appearance of being a museum mile, it is actually a vital urban neighborhood enhanced by on-going preservation efforts since the 1950s.

For more information or to make reservations, please contact Jenn Wilson at 401-273-7507 x360 or jwilson@rihs.org.
