Rhode Island

John Brown House

A three-story Georgian mansion at 52 Power Street, the house celebrates many aspects of Rhode Island's heritage, including its distinctive tradition of fine craftsmanship, Providence's rise as a city and the state's commitment to preserve the fibers of its unique history.

The 1786 brick-and-brownstone mansion was owned by many generations of the family for whom Brown University was named.
It is open to visitors via tours conducted by the Rhode Island Historical Society. On display are mint-condition original furnishings, including pieces made by leading Rhode Island craftsmen such as Townsend & Goddard and William Clagget, clockmaker.
