Historic Preservation

Rhode Island is a state rich in history; one of the original thirteen colonies and the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. The successful preservation of historic sites, a mission actively supported by The Champlin Foundation, has been one of the main reasons Rhode Island has remained such a beautiful and interesting place to live and visit.

This investment in historic preservation ensures that future generations of our residents and visitors to the state will be able to explore historic landmarks and see the lasting contributions of famous Rhode Islanders.
