Dirt Palace Meets Wedding Cake House 
Project Review on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at WBNA
Vacant for decades and neglected to the point of near ruin, the Wedding Cake House at 514 Broadway may have something to look forward to in its 150th birthday year.

Dirt Palace, an arts collaborative in Olneyville, purchased the Kendrick-Prentice-Tirocchi House (aka Wedding Cake House) this past winter and plans to transform this important property into an artist-in-residence hub as well as a bed and breakfast for arts/culture tourists and researchers. 

Learn more about 514 Broadway here, and about the Dirt Palace's plans for this well-loved building at our regular WBNA Community Development Committee Meeting this Tuesday, June 13, at 6pm. All are welcome.

|  We Heart the Armory
As part of an ongoing effort to return the castle to the people, WBNA led its first Armory Open! Tours during PVDFest's celebration in the park. With 16 packed-to-the-max groups, 3 Spanish-speaking tours, and well over a hundred people on the waiting list for possible future tours, this event was a great success and a clear display of the community's interest in the past and future of this important building.
