Mile of History Association


The Mile of History Association (MoHA) is a private, non-profit 501(3)(c) organization working with the Providence Preservation Society and the City of Providence to revitalize area infrastructure; ensure that properties in the area are in compliance with zoning and housing standards and Historic District Commission guidelines; and preserve and promote the historic character of the area for both residents and visitors


Known as the “Mile of History,” the Benefit Street area is home to one of the most extensive collections of 18th and 19th century architecture in the country. It is a vibrant and dense mix of civic, educational, cultural, and religious institutions interspersed with historically significant single- and multi-family residences.
