John Brown had this house built between 1786 and 1788. A 12-room mansion, it was larger and grander than any other home in Providence at the time, and its location was further up the hill than the rest of the town at the time. This position allowed clear views to the local waterfronts, but it also meant that the house could be seen by the other residents of Providence at that point.
