Providence Preservation Society [RI]

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 to a citywide preservation organization. With a large membership, a professional staff, and countless volunteers, the Society is able to provide a broad range of services that fulfill its mission to improve the quality of life in the city of Providence through historic preservation and the enhancement of the built environment. Society activities include the Festival of Historic Houses, advocacy, tours for school children, homeowner resources, and many other events and programs.

The society offers tours, educational programs, lectures, occasional exhibits, and occasional recreational and educational events.
