FRUIT HILL - A local neighborhood is featured by a national magazine as one of 12 best "old house" neighborhoods.

The Fruit Hill area of North Providence can be seen on the web site for the magazine "This Old House."

Home styles in the neighborhood are 19th and 20th century Greek Revival, Colonial Revival, and Queen Anne, as well as smaller bungalows from the 1920s and 30s.

Representatives from the area say they hope this encourages more people to move there.

"If you're young and starting out, and you want to buy a house, you can buy something reasonably in that neighborhood and get much better quality than you're probably going to get if you go and buy something new... you also get the character and the neighborhood," said Mac Woodward, President of the Fruit Hill Neighborhood Association.
