about The Historic Fleur de Lys Building
The Fleur de Lys Studio, built in 1885 is a National Historic Landmark. It has been featured regionally and nationally as one of the most unique structures in RI and America. The building was designed by Sydney Burleigh with Providence architect Edmund Willson. Through its Norman, half-timbered façade, the structure lends what some have called a 16th-century atmosphere to Thomas Street. Lending Burleigh a hand with the decoration were John G, Aldrich and Charles Walter Stetson. The evidence of their combined artistic handiwork is present in every nook and cranny. When the house was deeded to the Art Club by Mrs. Burleigh in 1939, she stipulated that it continue to be used for artists’ studios, as it has been to this day.
In 1992, the Fleur de Lys Building was placed on the National Register of Historical Places.
