Event description
Linden Place Museum will host walking tours of Linden Place Mansion and downtown Bristol, focused specifically on Bristol’s DeWolf Family

About this event

The DeWolf family, Bristol’s premier family in the 18th and early 19th centuries, was once one of the largest traders of slaves in New England. The two-hour guided tours take place on select Thursday afternoons at 1:30 PM and begin at Linden Place, the Federal-style mansion built by architect Russell Warren for George DeWolf. The tour then continues through the center of historic Bristol and down to the waterfront pointing out significant sites tied to Bristol’s lengthy and profitable involvement in the slave trade. Remaining 2021 Walking Tour Dates include September 9 & 23, October 7 & 21. Additional dates may be added as the season continues. The tour is $20, $15 for Linden Place members, and includes a complimentary self-guided tour of Linden Place Mansion. Reservations are required and the tour is limited to 15 people.
