Press release

West Broadway Neighborhood Association announces “Creative Conversions,” its Fifth Annual House Tour, featuring a dozen creatively re-imagined homes, artist studios, and urban gardens on Providence's West Side. Presented this year in a special partnership with Providence Preservation Society (PPS), “Creative Conversions” features a small pocket of the city’s west side that is nestled beside the atmospheric Cranston Street Armory on Harrison and Hammond streets.


History

 For the past four years, people from near and far have stepped over the threshold of historic homes and seen what it’s like to live in an old New England city. On the tours, visitors see how owners decide to refurbish  structures on the West Side of the city, and how elements of modern design are integrated with historic details.
