Looking up Weybosset St. from the corner of Dorrance and Weybosset. There is minor street construction occurring, and the Beneficent Congregational Church can be seen in the distance. The church was built in 1809 and remodeled to its current appearance in 1836. Loew's, in its pre-Providence Performing Arts Center renovation and renewal is also shown as well as the Outlet Company. The Outlet company would burn in the following years, and other revitalization motions would change the outlook of Weybosset and its place in the downtown area.
