Brent Runyon became Executive Director of the Providence Preservation Society in October, 2013. Formed in 1956 to respond to the proposed demolition of a number of 18th- and early 19th-century houses on College Hill, the Providence Preservation Society (PPS) has grown from a small neighborhood group to a multifaceted citywide preservation organization. PPS works to improve Providence by advocating for historic preservation and the enhancement of its unique character through thoughtful design and planning. For more information, visit www.ppsri.org.
