Significance: The Provisions Warehouse Historic District is significant for its associations with the history of the Providence food provisions industry and for its related technology and industrial machinery.

The work of several noted local architects and engineers, including Stone, Carpenter, & Willson, architects, Oresto DiSaia, architect, Jenks & Ballou, engineers, and George Leach, engineers, is represented by buildings in the district.
