Preserve Rhode Island (PRI) was founded in 1956 under state charter to "preserve the beautiful historic buildings, places and things in Rhode Island." Properties such as Lippitt House Museum, Jeremiah Dexter House, Philip Walker House, and Hannah Robinson's Rock were donated, accepted for stewardship, and have been guided into responsible management - whether under our direct care or through affiliated organizations.
In 1999, the organization adopted its current name (previously the Heritage Foundation of Rhode Island and then the Heritage Trust of Rhode Island), marking the expansion of its role from steward to statewide preservation advocate. PRI began responding to local issues in communities that grappled with sprawl, lack of resources, community revitalization, maintaining community character and more.
PRI is a 501(3)c non-profit charitable organization directed by a volunteer Board of Trustees dedicated to protecting the historic and unique places that define Rhode Island. Our small professional staff work with a philosophy of team work amongst ourselves and collaborate with other organizations and individuals, all to preserve Rhode Island as a place where we love to live, work and play.
