Summary

Significance: Linden Place, built in 1810 for General George DeWolf, is an outstanding example of the in-town estates built by the merchant elite in the early 19th century. The mansion, in the heart of Bristol, Rhode Island, was designed by noted regional architect Russell Warren. This magnificent estate built on a Federal plan has extensive Neo-classical motifs that reflect both Warren's fascination for detail and his knowledge of the main features of Federal architecture.
