This new tour, taking place Tuesday, June 13, 5:30pm, will look at the intersection of downtown Providence’s vibrant restaurant scene and the city’s engaging history of preservation. Presented as part of the RIHS’s 2017 programming theme, “Relishing Rhode Island,” as well as the statewide A La Rhody initiative.
We don’t want to spoil too much, but here’s a preview from Assistant Director of the Newell D. Goff Center for Education and Public Programs Jennifer M. Wilson:
“When I first thought about looking at downtown restaurants that are situated in preserved buildings, I didn’t realize just how great that number was. After developing the tour, the tour guides and I realized that there are about 50 restaurants, cafes, and bars just on our mile-long route alone! We’re excited to look at downtown in two contexts: first, how it grew rapidly a hundred years ago, and second, what’s happening in the city now in the same spaces.”
The tour will begin at New Harvest Coffee & Spirits in the Arcade and conclude at The Eddy. Thanks to both for being in-kind sponsors.
