Blackstone Valley State Park Visitor Center
Lincoln, Rhode Island
Set within the Blackstone River State Park and connected to the Blackstone Historic Corridor bike path, this award-winning project complements the natural setting and historic architecture of northern Rhode Island. Boasting a cathedral-like space with massive post and beam construction and incorporating daylighting controls, the center displays the story of the Blackstone Valley National Heritage Corridor.
The center was commissioned by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and houses their offices as well as offices for the Rhode Island State Police. It also serves as a visitor center for the State off of Route 295.
