Vad du kommer att göra

First, bring a mask. We'll start on the river in front the silver circle sculpture and then weave around Brown University and College Hill, stopping to talk at lookouts, colonial sites, public sculptures, hidden gardens, and, for Crimetown fans, the scene of the "Nightmare on Power Street. " Roger Williams called Rhode Island a "lively experiment." I'll do my best to report how it worked out for Rhode Island and the nation. The walk is just two miles and should take about 2 hours. It's hilly. So bring good shoes.

I was a newsman for 47 years: reporter, editor, columnist, webmaster. I now teach journalism at the University of Rhode Island, where I have honed my performance-presentation skills. As a journalist, teacher, runner, reader of history and 16-year resident of Providence's Fox Point-College Hill neighborhood, I know the state's stories and hidden passages around Brown University and colonial Providence. Mine will be an amused and irreverent tour with time to indulge in the lives of the pious and the profane. By rights, Providence should be known as the place the American Revolution began, but the citizens had to keep it quiet. King George had a bounty on John Brown's head.

Var ni kommer att vara

The Providence waterfront; John Brown's house on a hill; the scene of Buddy Cianci's first felony, the place where the Revolution started, but no one noticed; Brown University; H.P. Lovecraft Square; gardens tucked out of view; the library where Sarah Whitman dismissed Edgar Alan Poe; the site of the Snow Town race riot of 1831; the Roger Williams lookout; and the home of the colonial governor who tried to negotiate a peace with Britain.

Peter is a great tour host and guide. Lots of interesting knowledge and stories of Rhode Island’s history. The tour took us through neighborhoods and the grounds of Brown and RISD. He adjusted the pace to accommodate my BF’s sore feet. Highly recommend!!

Peter is pleasant, informative, and very easy going. The tour discusses indigenous peoples, colonial, and more modern history of Providence and Rhode Island. Feel free to ask questions, Peter is a wealth of information.

Great tour. Peter's done his research and has kept his content relevant and extremely interesting. The presentation was clear and personal. Exactly what we were hoping for.

We learned a lot on the tour and Peter’s background as a reporter shone through. He knows the city and took us on a great tour through the city’s history.

With one person in a party having never been to Providence, I received a really thorough overview of the history while taking a much-needed tour of the important places in the city. Our host was very knowledgeable and had a slight sense of humor that made us chuckle.

When you meet Peter, you feel like you're meeting a friend. Tour wise, he tells a compelling history of the city with a clear theme, and takes you to nooks and crannies you would not otherwise explore. I would definitely recommend if you're feeling like you want to know the inside scoop about the city beyond what might be on a plaque in the museum. Thank you Peter!
