As you tour the 200-year old mansion rooms, the women of Linden Place come alive through portraits, photographs, artifacts and more.  Learn about generations of DeWolf & Colt women who lived at Linden Place and the daily lives and roles of ladies in the 19th and early 20th centuries.  Hear the stories about the different women who lived and worked at Linden Place Mansion from 1810 through 1986:  a slave trader’s wife (Charlotte DeWolf), a widow, who to make ends meet turned Linden Place into a boarding house (Sarah DeWolf), the social “grand dame” of Bristol, Theodora, who saved Linden Place from the auction block and an Oscar award winning actress (Ethel Barrymore), who spent summers at Linden Place.

Admission is $8, $6 for seniors and students with an ID. Reservations are recommended as space is limited. For reservations, please call the Linden Place office at 401-253-0390 or e-mail info@lindenplace.org
