"Mile of History"

From Main Street in the northern part of College Hill to Alves Way in the neighborhood of Fox Point, this street also called the 'Mile of History', truly is. In fact, Benefit Street had been a catalyst in the history of the city and state. Along the way visitors will see many Victorian and Colonial homes as well as the campus of Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. The street is filled with other historical attractions like the Providence Athenaeum, the First Baptist Church in America (literally) and the anachronistic John Brown and Nightingale Houses. If you choose to walk yourself, the Providence Preservation Society provides free pamphlets in order to guide you down the street.
