Bristol Architecture Walking Tour
Back by popular demand, Linden Place is pleased to present a reprise of its popular walking tour of downtown Bristol, focused on the work of Russell Warren, one of New England’s most renowned architects of the 19th century, known for his wide use of the Greek Revival style. In addition to his popular work throughout Rhode Island, including Linden Place Mansion in Bristol and the Providence Arcade, America’s oldest indoor shopping mall, Warren’s architecture can be seen throughout Massachusetts, South Carolina, New York, Georgia and Canada. The walking tour will be led by David Harrington, who has recently begun "The Russell Warren Project", a community based research effort surrounding the work and history of Russell Warren.
This guided walking tour around downtown Bristol allows tour goers the chance to experience the architecture of Warren first hand. The tour begins at Linden Place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 20th and continues along the tree-lined streets where many Warren-designed homes still exist. Tour goers will have special access to interiors of select private homes. The cost for the tour is $10 for members and $15 for the general public. Comfortable attire appropriate for walking is suggested.
Advanced registration is necessary and can be made by calling the Linden Museum office at 401-253-0390 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
