Built in 1792 by Captain Joseph Nightingale, the Nightingale-Brown House is a National Historic Landmark in Providence, Rhode Island. It got its name from its two owners, Captain Joseph Nightingale who built it, and Nicholas Brown, Jr., the Rhode Island philanthropist and businessman and namesake of Brown University.

The Nightingale-Brown House features Georgian style architecture. Brown?s descendants lived in the house, and they?ve appropriated the mansion to the tastes of their generation. It was renovated, expanded, and restored a couple of times. Landscape was also added in 1890.

When Anne S. K. Brown died in 1985, the Nightingale-Brown House was donated to Brown University. It now houses and serves as the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage.
