Sept 24th MUSEUM DAY – Free Admission to Gov. Henry Lippitt House Museum!

Sat., Sept 24th, 1-3 PM Present your free admission ticket (details provided on link below ) and visit this amazing on Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day. Built at 199 Hope Street in Providence for textile merchant Henry Lippitt, his wife Mary Ann Balch Lippitt and their six children, the house was completed in 1865 and occupied by several generations of the Lippitt family for 114 years. Over the years the family made only a few changes respecting the historic integrity of their ancestor’s legacy. The house was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976 and is an exceptional testament to local craftsman of the time. The majority of their furnishings still exist in the house.
