Why Preserve? A Walking Tour Series in Four of Providence’s Historic Neighborhoods

PPS concludes a year-long thematic exploration into the past, present and future of historic preservation with a four-part series of walking tours in four very different Providence neighborhoods. Elected officials will work with community scholars to help us examine elements that contribute to place-making, and what role historic preservation plays in creating vibrant, sustainable neighborhoods.

Through these tours, we will disrupt the prevailing notion that the relevance of historic preservation is divided along socioeconomic lines. Participants will hear challenges to their views and beliefs, and be able to challenge the same in others. These participatory conversations will spur new ideas for interpreting our historic resources and distill an understanding of how historic preservation can better contribute to the daily lives of Providence’s citizens.

This project is made possible by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
