Walking Tour - Benefit Street: A Mile of History

Tuesday, Sep 17, 2019 from 10:00am to 12:30pm


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 its breathtaking historic structures can give the street the appearance of a museum mile, it is actually a vital urban neighborhood enhanced by ongoing preservation efforts since the 1950s. Thus, the tour itself tells a story that touches on the past, present, and future.

Admission is $15; $12 for seniors; $10 for RIHS members and students, $6 for children 10-17, and free for children under 10. The tour departs from the John Brown House Museum (52 Power St., Providence).
