This National Historic Landmark was the home of John Brown, whose varied life saw him as an American revolutionary during the War of Independence, a slavetrader, a Rhode Island congressman, and a trustee of the school that would become Brown University. The museum is recommended by the Michelin Guide, and John Quincy Adams called the home "the most magnificent and elegant private mansion that I have ever seen on this continent."

Rhode Island Historical Society
The Rhode Island Historical Society collects and displays artifacts from Rhode Island's past. In the Museum of Work & Culture, exhibits tell the story of the people in 19th- and 20th-century mill towns who valued work and enterprise so much that they never wasted an entire afternoon on Wikipedia. The society also maintains the 18th-century John Brown House Museum and hosts walking tours following in the footsteps of authors Jane Jacobs and H.P. Lovecraft.
