H.P. Lovecraft’s Haunted Providence Tour Package
Cost: $16/per person
Date: Saturday, October 24th
The life and work of Providence's best-known fantasy and horror author, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, will provide the backdrop for the tour, which will be lead by the Rhode Island Historical Society. Lovecraft's "Providence stories" (written between 1924 and 1935) provide the basis for this walk. Lovecraft wrote eloquently, and in great detail, about such landmarks as Prospect Terrace, the First Baptist Church, and Benefit Street houses. Participants will see the site of his former home, as well as locales mentioned in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, The Haunter of the Dark, The Shunned House, and The Call of Cthulhu.
Following the tour, participants will be treated to a special screening of films at the Columbus Theater in Providence inspired by Lovecraft’s stories.
