The Wedding Cake House was built in 1867 and was last fully occupied by the famous Tirocchi sisters dressmakers (1915-1947) and the Tirocchi family. The house fell into disrepair and was abandoned sometime in the 1990's till 2016.
Dirt Palace Public Projects (a local feminist arts not-for-profit) began renovating the house in 2016 to serve as a project based Artist Residency Facility that is supported by short term rentals of people visiting Providence.

De ruimte
This room (#2) is faces Broadway and overlooks the lawn. It is on the 2nd floor. This room features a private bathroom. There's a queen bed, as well as a day bed that can be used for an additional guest. This day bed is shorter than a regular bed, so best suited for smaller people or children. Please let us know if you require this to be set up as a bed, and we'll prepare it before your arrival. Due to Covid-19 precautions, the dining room is not open for eating meals (tea and coffee are available all day to be taken to your room, or outside). A light “continental-ish” breakfast will be delivered to your room according to specifications on a google form that we ask guests who are interested in breakfast to fill out.

Your stay at the Wedding Cake House helps us to support the creation of new artistic works in Providence, for which we are deeply grateful.

From local Historian Taylor Polites: “The first owner John Kendrick was an inventor whose American Supply Company dominated the global market in loom and reed harnesses, a crucial element of textile mill power looms. The c. 1867 mansion attributed to Broadway architect Perez Mason reflects the euphoric froth of new money. For a while owned by railway and button-fastener tycoon George Prentice, in 1915, the house was purchased by Italian immigrant dressmaker Anna Tirocchi. In the elegant salons of the Wedding Cake House, Anna and her sister Laura fitted Providence’s elite in their couture creations that echoed Paris fashions. At Anna’s death in 1947, everything was wrapped in tissue paper and put away. Some forty years later, RISD Museum curators were stunned as if entering a fashion time capsule when Laura’s son invited them into the house to catalog and preserve the collection.”
The house was renovated between 2016 and 2020 by 100s of local artisans, tradespeople, and craftspeople. Traditional and contemporary arts are incorporated into every aspect of the house, often in dialogue with the history of the site. Textiles from the Tirocchi collection provided inspiration for wall papers hand printed down the street by local artists. Central questions of the project are “what can the roll of artists be in constructing contemporary understandings and interpretations of history?” and “What rolls can artists play in various aspects of repair?”.

Our goal is to serve guests with interests in the arts and regional history, who want to support contemporary practices through their travel budgets.
