The Russell Warren Digitization Project
In partnership with local historian David Harrington, the Rhode Island Historical Society is leading a collaborative effort, with the help of partners such as the Providence Athenaeum and Linden Place, to assemble a comprehensive database of digitized plans, drawings, and other documentation detailing the life and work of esteemed local architect Russell Warren.  Working in Rhode Island in the early 19th century, Russell Warren made pivotal contributions to Rhode Island and Massachusetts architecture.  His work spans decades and includes such iconic buildings as the Nathan Durfee House, the Double Bank Building and the Arcade.

The mission of the Russell Warren Project is to make available in a single location the plans created by Russell Warren and the historical documents relating to his life that are currently spread across the region.  By digitizing these records, we will encourage broader access to these collections and protect the original materials from repeated physical use.   RIHS hopes to close the gap between these varied collections by hosting their digitized versions and home organizations on one streamlined online catalog.  Over the course of this project, RIHS also hopes that our efforts will encourage other members of the community to identify their pieces of Russell Warren history, helping to draft a more complete picture of the prolific RI architect.
