Collaborating to leverage expertise and funding to preserve Rhode Island...


Preserve Rhode Island works with local partners to take on special fundraising, advocacy, and research projects to raise the profile of historic preservation in Rhode Island and think strategically to protect our state's unique and historic places.


 Preserve RI is embarking on a full rehabilitation of the Valentine Whitman Jr. House (ca. 1696) in Lincoln, as part of our Revolving Fund program.

Preserve RI and the Preservation Society of Newport County, have partnered as the Aquidneck Stone Wall Initiative to protect and improve the Island's historic and scenic quality by rebuilding its historic stone walls.
