H.P. Lovecraft Literary Walking Tour

One of our most popular events returns: College Hill gets especially eerie around this time each year, when the Rhode Island Historical Society celebrates the birthday of H.P. Lovecraft. This would have been his 124th year, and his macabre stories are no less chilling for their age: See the spots that inspired Lovecraft to write some of his most horrific tales. Walk the streets he walked, and check out places that he mentioned in works such as "The Call of Cthulhu." Ticket includes admission to film programming of the Horror Film Festival. The tour lasts 90 min. and includes screenings at 2:00 p.m. of HP LOVECRAFTIAN SHORT FILMS at the Providence Public Library, 150 Empire Street, Providence.
