Preserve Rhode Island strives to be a first-class steward of the properties under its care - from our public buildings in Providence, Lippitt House Museum and headquarters at the Jeremiah Dexter House, to the Philip Walker House in East Providence - we maintain our buildings and undertake major capital projects to ensure the physical structure and historic fabric of each is preserved for generations to come.
The issue of sustaining historic buildings has become a key theme both in our statewide work and for our own properties as we consider the future of Rhode Island's historic properties. PRI advocates for keeping old buildings in productive use. We use our properties in a variety of ways - the Dexter House serves as our headquarters, the Walker House acts as both our property manager's residence and a study house, and the Lippitt House Museum contains income-producing residential units,
PRI also owns Hannah Robinson Rock, which is independently operated by Rhode Island DEM.
