Providence Preservation Society, historic houses in New England

Festival of Historic Houses

June 2-3, 2017

The Providence Preservation Society (PPS) presents the Festival of Historic Houses in the city's Upper Elmwood Historic District. One of the region's most anticipated cultural events, the Festival offers self-guided access to more than one dozen private, historic homes. Homes on this year's tour are treasures from Providence's greatest industrial growth period in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and an adjacent neighborhood fair celebrates the area's rich cultural diversity. The event is timed with the city's third annual PVD Fest for a comprehensive art and architecture experience.

Make the day or weekend trip to Providence! Purchase your tickets in advance here.
