The WBNA House Tour is a signature event that showcases the west side to visitors near and far. More than 4,000 tour-goers have flocked to the neighborhood over the past four years  to experience our stunning architecture and soak in our vibrant sense of community. The tour curates a unique experience for curious clientele as well as for long-time neighbors, life-long Rhode Islanders, and native New Englanders wanting heritage-tourism at its hippest. Touted in the New York Times, GQ Magazine and other national media, Providence’s west side has become one of the most sought after neighborhoods to visit, live, work and play. The House Tour weekend is our only fundraiser, and supports WBNA’s work throughout the entire year.
