Knowles Row

-A A +A
c. 1862. 149–155 Benefit St.

The four-story clapboarded Italianate Knowles Row belongs to a type of housing that is rare and scattered in Providence, here particularly impressive for the forceful projection of repetitive bracketed entrance heads. In the interior planning of these houses, the parlor is lifted to the piano nobile, above the entrance floor.
