Providence: A Short History & Guide, by Anne Marie Keohane
Paperback released July 7, 2019.
This short history and guide of Providence, Rhode Island brings together a collection of interesting things to see and do while you visit our charming capital city. As you progress through the chapters, you can simultaneously stroll through the streets of Providence and guide yourself with the simple maps included. Rhode Islanders born and raised here will also enjoy reading these short chapters as they take you for a stroll back in time to recall the historical events and ambitious entrepreneurship that is at the very core of this small but mighty state. Throughout time, good fortune and prosperity may have risen and declined, more than once, but the character and ambiance of Providence has remained rich, diverse, and welcoming. Thanks to preservation visionaries, modern Providence retains much it's old world architecture and important buildings. This book will help you learn a few key things about their histories, as well as some tips and tidbits I found helpful when I first moved here.
