Fodor's Review

Rhode Island's most famous 18th-century home was the stately residence of John Brown, a wealthy businessman, slave trader, politician, and China Trade merchant. John Quincy Adams called the home, designed in late-Georgian, early-Federal style, "the most magnificent and elegant private mansion that I have ever seen on this continent." An ardent patriot, Brown was a noteworthy participant in the burning of the British customs ship Gaspee in 1772. A variety of musical concerts are held on the lawn in summer.
