About Providence County Courthouse
The Providence County Courthouse is a Georgian-styled building in the College Hill neighborhood of Providence, Rhode Island. At a height of 66 meters (216 ft), it is the 10th-tallest building in the city. Architectural historian McKenzie Woodward lauds the building for its contextualism, which defers in its design to the buildings surrounding. Woodward also commends the fragmentation of the building's large mass into "visually digestible units".
