Experience 300 years of architectural history as you cruise the Providence waterways! This 75-minute boat tour, led by the Providence Preservation Society, highlights the stories, sightlines, and subtle details that define Providence. From the most eye-catching landmarks on the city skyline to hidden architectural gems, you’ll discover historic Providence from the best seat in town. A portion of all proceeds will benefit the Providence Preservation Society.

The Providence Preservation Society (PPS) was established in 1956 to respond to the proposed demolition of a number of 18th- and early 19th-century houses on College Hill. Unlike many historic preservation organizations that were formed to preserve a particular building, PPS has always been an advocate for neighborhood revitalization. From that small neighborhood group, PPS has grown into a multifaceted citywide preservation and planning organization.
