Owner info

Why the Owner Chose College Hill, Providence, RI, USA:
Under the roof and within the four walls of Athenaeum Row have lived generations young and old, artists and writers of renown, and visiting academic luminaries from around the globe, each lending to a distinguished provenance singular and unique throughout our historic city. It is our hope to continue this tradition of hospitality by extending a warm welcome to those discerning explorers of Providence who seek a 'home away from home'.
