Experience the Magnificence at Linden Place

Welcome to Linden Place, a Federal-style mansion built in 1810 for George and Charlotte DeWolf. Over the next two centuries, descendants of the family occupied this home. They were slave traders, merchants, tycoons, and artists. Each has an intriguing story to tell.


A mansion in the heart of Bristol, Linden Place offers a glimpse into the Gilded Age. Long before Gatsby swept Daisy off her feet in the light of this historic home, Linden Place was the dramatic stage for the DeWolf and Colt family's multi-generational journey from the slave trade through the Industrial Age, weaving together several threads of American history. Along the way, they hosted presidents and poets, married into a world-famous theatrical family, and collected a wide array of treasures, which are on display. Though Linden Place's walls can't talk, audio tours during museum hours provide a good account of one of the country's most beautiful and fascinating house museums.


With its magnificent mansion, sculpture-filled rose garden, and charming courtyard, Linden Place is also a unique and enchanting event and wedding venue. Designed by renowned Rhode Island architect Russell Warren, Linden Place provides couples with a truly unforgettable setting.
