ABOUT THE HOUSE TOUR
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.
Our much anticipated, regionally recognized tour, just 5 years in, is getting a very special boost this year. For 2018, the West Broadway Neighborhood Association and Providence Preservation Society are combining their annual house tours into one unforgettable event. With PPS’s 38 years of expertise in running exquisite tour events, and WBNA’s out-of-the-box tour style, this year’s House Tour Weekend is sure to stun, inspire, and reach a far greater audience than ever before.
