Significance: Downtown Providence is significant as a concentrated, well-preserved collection of resources associated with the historic development of Rhode Island's most important city. Buildings within the district chronicle the history of the city's commercial development from about 1800 to 1940, the era in which Downtown Providence substantially achieved its present form. A wide variety of commercial types and styles of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are represented. As the financial, commercial, governmental, and theatrical center of the state, the Downtown Providence area is an important cultural resource that preserves a wealth of information about Rhode Island's economic, cultural, and architectural history.
