Below are highlights of projects and programs that without Preserve RI's leadership and participation would not have been possible.

As the only state-wide historic preservation non-profit in Rhode Island, we are often asked to step in when our leadership and expertise are needed for projects that no one else has the ability or capacity to take on.  With limited resources ourselves, we pride ourselves in finding solutions through innovation and collaboration.
