PPS Walking Tour — Brown & Sharpe

Brown & Sharpe(6.28) Four neighborhoods; four talks; four tours. Taking preservation from the classroom to the taproom!

Thursday is the first walking tour of the PPS “Talk the Talk, and Walk the Walk” series. Join Providence Preservation Society Executive Director James Hall for a walking tour of the old Brown & Sharpe Manufacturing Complex (the “talk” has already taken place, but it is unlikely that Mr. Hall has actually stopped talking).

The remaining three talks and tours will feature; the Armory District, South Elmwood, and Brown University’s Modernist Buildings (wouldn’t be surprised to see David Brusatt on that one). Each tour ends at a notable neighborhood pub. Mr. Hall is a lively speaker and good company.

Free for PPS members, $10 for non-members. Space is limited so go to website to sign up, or call 401.831.7440.

Brown & Sharpe tour meets at 5:30pm, Thursday, June 28, at the Edith Street parking lot at the Promenade (map here)
