Overview

Join us on Saturday October 1, 2016, from 10am-4pm for a self-guided tour of the cottages and courts of the Armory District .*

In 2014 the National Trust for Historic Preservation outlined the important role small historic buildings play in generating robust local economies in their report titled “Older, Smaller, Better: Measuring how the character of buildings and blocks influences urban vitality”. We wholeheartedly agree! That is why our 3rd Annual House Tour celebrates the urban vitality of the West Side of Providence by featuring cottages and courts of the historic Armory District. Sometimes our smallest houses are our sweetest, cutest and coziest houses. They also tend to be the most efficient and green; demonstrating very concretely that urban living, historic preservation, and sustainability can coexist and thrive together.


*Since the houses on this year's House Tour are fairly small, they may be harder to navigate for people with mobility impairments.
