PBN Story: Free Superman building tours scheduled, ‘sold’ out in 2 hours


PROVIDENCE – Those interested in seeing the inside of the closed “Superman” building at 111 Westminster St. will have to wait their turn. Two hours after letting the public know about the complimentary tours, scheduled for five dates between this weekend and Sept. 24, the events are now completely booked.

According to a press release from the building’s owner, David Sweetser of High Rock Development, the building, formerly known as the Industrial Trust bank building, but nicknamed “Superman” due to its resemblance of the iconic structure in the comic books and old television show, will be open for free tours July 23, Aug. 11 and 20, and Sept. 10 and 24.
