Providence Preservation Society

The red building across the street is home to the Providence
Preservation Society which is responsible for having saved the historic buildings of Providence. In warmer seasons it gardens are a perfect spot for a picnic purchased at Geoff ’s just up on Benefit Street. The One Room Schoolhouse has a great history and was used for early classes by Brown University and was home to an early school to educate African American students. Next to the firehouse is a memorial to the first responders who went to the world trade center on the day of the 9-11 attack.
