Because of the overwhelming success of our sale of the keepsake ornaments of the Superman Building last year, we’ve decided to make it a new PPS tradition. We’re excited to announce that this year’s limited-edition ornament features the iconic Cranston Street Armory!

Click here to place your order. Ornaments are $30 each, including shipping and handling, and orders will ship as they are received.

Built in 1907 and designed by local architectural firm William R. Walker & Son, the Armory was used by the RI National Guard until the mid-1990s. During its 25-year vacancy, PPS has been a stalwart advocate for adaptive reuse of the building — a nine-time PPS Most Endangered Property. PPS remains optimistic that a second chapter of this great building will be written.

Proceeds from the sale of this keepsake ornament will support our citywide historic preservation advocacy work, which includes raising awareness of Providence’s rich architectural and cultural history, identifying threats to the built environment, and educating the public on the importance of conserving historic resources. Thank you in advance for supporting the ongoing work of PPS and for cherishing this beloved neighborhood landmark, the Cranston Street Armory.

These ornaments will sell quickly, so don’t delay! Place your order today. Please contact us at if you have any issues with the order form.
