Built in 1708, the Governor Stephen Hopkins House is a National Historic Landmark, currently serving as a museum to share its rich history to the public.
It was the home of the former Rhode Island governor, Stephen Hopkins, who was also notable for being a signer in the Declaration of Independence.
Hopkins acquired the Providence, Rhode Island home in 1942. He improved it and made it more spacious than it was before. This is also where his two sons and first wife, Sarah, died. It was also his home when he signed the Declaration in 1776, after he became the country?s Chief Justice and a part of the Congress.
Today, the Governor Stephen Hopkins House is under the care of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America.
