H.P. Lovecraft Walking Tour
52 Power St. Providence, RI
Saturday and Sunday, October 22nd & 23rd, 2016
Noon - 1:30pm

The life and work of Providence's best-known fantasy and horror author, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, provide the backdrop for this walking tour.

Acknowledged genius of occult and horror fiction, Lovecraft's "Providence stories" (written between 1924 and 1935) provide the basis for this walk. Lovecraft wrote eloquently, and in great detail, about such landmarks as Prospect Terrace, the First Baptist Church, and Benefit Street houses. See the site of his former home, as well as the sights mentioned in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, The Haunter of the Dark, The Shunned House, and The Call of Cthulhu. Lovecraft's own words offer a most amazing literary, historical, and architectural walking tour.
The tour lasts 90 minutes.

Cost: Tickets are $18 per person, and includes a ticket to the Horror Festival
