2021 Most Endangered Properties (Providence Preservation Society)

For over 25 years, PPS has worked with concerned neighbors, owners, and community activists to develop the annual MEP list. Its purpose is to generate interest in and support for the preservation of vulnerable structures and places; to educate the public about the benefits of historic preservation and the diverse architectural resources available in Providence; and to foster creative collaboration among property owners, developers, and other interested parties to bring about positive change at each property.  

Buildings and artifacts on this year’s MEP list span a variety of aspects from the city’s history. Listings represent our rich residential architecture and sacred spaces; our industrial, manufacturing, and commercial heritage; and one property that connects us to an 18th century fraternal organization: Prince Hall Masonic Temple. The city of Providence might be the most surprising inclusion this year; however, it is clear that climate change and sea level rise will affect historic and cultural resources across the city in the coming decades.

2021 Most Endangered Properties List:
  • Industrial Trust Building (aka Superman Building), 111 Westminster Street, Downtown (1928)
  • House, 234 Lenox Avenue, South Elmwood (c. 1880)

  • Standard Wholesale Liquors Co., 115 Harris Avenue, Smith Hill (1937)
