The Aylesworth Apartments are an historic apartment building at 188-194 Broad Street in Providence, Rhode Island. It is a 2-1/2 story structure, built in brick on the first floor, and with its upper floors finished in slate. It has a busy roofline, typical of the Queen Anne style popular when it was built in 1888-89. Its main entry is recessed under a large round archway which also has a small second-story porch under it. The building originally housed four apartments, but was altered in 1978 to house professional offices. It is the oldest known building built as an apartment house in the city.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
