Named one of the most beautiful libraries in the world, the Providence Athenæum provides a spectacular and unique atmosphere for your celebration.
The library, founded in 1836 and visited by literary greats such as Edgar Allan Poe and Ralph Waldo Emerson, creates an unforgettable backdrop of thousands of books, stunning architecture, and storied Providence history. We are honored to help celebrate your new chapter.
