Ladies of Linden Place
500 Hope St
Bristol, RI 02809
On Saturday at 11 a.m., a special docent-led tour is being offered in celebration of Women’s History Month focusing on the lives of the women who made history at Linden Place Mansion. As you tour the 200-year old mansion rooms, the women of Linden Place come alive through portraits, photographs, artifacts and more. Learn about the many generations of DeWolf and Colt women who lived in the mansion, their daily lives and roles of ladies in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Hear the stories about the different women who lived and worked at Linden Place 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 bloc and an Oscar winning actress, Ethel Barrymore, who spent summers at Linden Place.
Admission is $10, $8 for seniors and students with an ID, free for Linden Place members. Reservations are recommended as space is limited. For reservations, please call 401-253-0390 or email email@example.com.
