Hear the stories of the women who lived and worked at Linden Place Mansion through the ages at Linden Place’s “Ladies of Linden Place” Guided Tour.

Starting in 2017, a special docent-led tour will be offered on select Saturdays focusing on the lives of the women who made history at Linden Place Mansion. The next “Ladies of Linden Place” tour will take place on Saturday, May 20th at 11am.

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 upcoming tour dates and reservations, please call the Linden Place office at 401-253-0390 or e-mail info@lindenplace.org
