Saturday, OCT. 7 : 10am-4pm

The West Side has a new story to tell. Once a disinvested neighborhood, it has awakened as one of the most desirable places to live, work, and play in Rhode Island. 

You can explore the story! See how a decades-long urban transformation has impacted the city. Discover restaurants, bars, and shops, and step inside affordable, market-rate, rental- and owner-occupied, single & multi-family Victorians, converted mills, and newly built homes.

On Saturday October 7, 2017, from 10am-4pm, fifteen houses are opening their doors to WBNA House Tour ticket holders. The self-guided tour explores the theme "From Vacant to Vibrant," and features homes and businesses on the streets of Knight, Brighton, Battey, Carpenter, and cobblestoned West Fountain. 

Make a day of it! For $20 you'll be invited to see inside 15 different houses and, along the tour route, find a lively business scene in and around the newly reconstructed Luongo Memorial Square.
