Rhode Island

Benefit Street

Benefit Street, often called the "Mile of History," is the most impressive collection of original Colonial homes in the US -- with 200 18th and 19th century buildings, brick sidewalks and antique gas lamps.
This magnificent concentration of period architecture is one of the finest historic districts in America.
Historic homes which have been preserved to the standards of the Preservation Society sport a plaque out front which names the original owner and date constructed.
History buffs will note the names of many significant Colonial figures.
