“The Ladies of Linden Place” Mansion Tour

April 21, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$10

Take a special docent-led tour focusing on the lives of the women who made history at Linden Place Mansion. As you tour the 200-year old mansion rooms, the women of Linden Place come alive through portraits, photographs, artifacts and more. Learn about the many generations of DeWolf & Colt women who lived in the mansion, their daily lives and roles of ladies in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Hear the stories about the different women who lived and worked at Linden Place from 1810 through 1986: Charlotte DeWolf, a slave trader’s wife; Sarah DeWolf, a widow, who to make ends meet turned Linden Place into a boarding house; the social “grand dame” of Bristol, Theodora, who saved Linden Place from the auction block; and an Oscar winning actress, Ethel Barrymore, who spent summers at Linden Place.
