Tours & Public Programs

The Society of Architectural Historians invites the public to participate in conference programs and tours that showcase the distinctive architecture and landscapes of Providence and nearby areas. Local historians, architects, preservationists and heritage professionals will guide the tours and lead discussions that address salient issues facing the region. Engaging the local community—both professionals and the interested public—is one of the aims of the SAH Annual International Conference, which will take place this year in Providence, Rhode Island, April 24–28.
