Fodor's Review

The two-term Rhode Island governor made his fortune selling textiles to both armies during the Civil War and spared no expense in building this home, which was completed in 1863. The ceilings, floors, and walls of this immaculate Renaissance Revival mansion are works of art as well as a time capsule. The house still has most of its original decor and furnishings, including neoclassical chandeliers cast in bronze. It has been called the only intact example of 19th-century Victorian high-style architecture in Providence.
