The John Brown House is a splendid mansion named after the nationalistic John Brown, who belonged to an affluent family of traders who once actively participated in the American Revolution. The mansion was once said to be visited by George Washington himself.
The John Brown house in providence not only exudes the impression of power and fortune, it houses antiques and artifacts said to be dating way back from the French revolution. That includes bathroom designs, ceramic mural walls, tiles and stained glasses.
Due to its historic value, the Rhode Island historic society spearheaded its preservation in 1942.
The detailed story and history behind this architecture marvel is compiled by the Rhode Island Historical Society Library.
