Governor Hentry Lippitt House was once the home of the textile merchant and former Rhode Island governor, Henry Lippitt and family. The site is currently a museum that honors the past of the historic house as well as its occupants from its completion in 1865.
Designed by architect Russell Warren, the Governor Henry Lippitt House has been chosen by the US Department of the Interior to be a National Historic Landmark. Its declaration took place in 1976.
The Governor Henry Lippitt House stayed with the Lippitt family after a couple of generations. In 1981, it was donated by the former governor?s descendants to the Preserve Rhode Island, a group dedicated to preserving and maintaining historically significant buildings and sites around the state.
