Linden Place is the centerpiece of Bristol's historic downtown, waterfront district. The property was designed and built for General George DeWolf by Rhode Island architect Russell Warren in 1810. The property stayed in the DeWolf family until the mid-1980's when the last living grandchild put the mansion on the market. In 1989, Friends of Linden Place, a non-profit organization purchased the property and today keep the mansion, the carriage barn built in 1825, the ballroom, the beautiful gardens and all buildings on the property in pristine condition.
Step back in time and explore one of the finest examples of Federal Period Architecture with its striking portico, intricately carved banisters and stately columns. The history behind the property is fascinating from George DeWolf's middle of the night departure and subsequent swarming of the mansion by the townspeople of Bristol to a mansion where Presidents were entertained. Today the mansion is open to the public and is frequently used for weddings and special events. Come and see what makes Linden Place one of Rhode Island's favorite treasures.
