Providence is home to an incredible variety of architecture that dates from tiny homes of the early 1700s to the beautiful bridges and landscapes of the new Waterplace Park. A great way to get a feel for the city's architectural majesty is by taking part in a tour. Two of the best are offered by Barbara Barnes and the Providence Preservation Society. Barbara's work on behalf of education and historic preservation in the city of Providence is legendary. You can contact her to arrange a private or group tour by writing ProvWalk@aol.com.
