The Lederer Building opens at the height of Providence's real estate boom. This building would served as offices for artists, musicians, and elaborate clothing designers.

Hotel Blackstone doubles in size, adding what will eventually become Hotel Providence's ballroom.
The Westminster Building ceases operation as a hotel.
The Westminster Building opens as a dormitory for Johnson & Wales University, and is called Bell Hall.
