Overview

This commanding three-floor mansion sits almost atop College Hill adjacent to Brown University. The house was built in 1786 for the premier Providence merchant of his day, John Brown. Now, under the purview of the Rhode Island Historical Society, this mansion retains some of the original furniture and decorations including a nine-shell desk and bookcase that are thought to be among the greatest remnants of American Colonial furniture.
