Ladies of Linden Place-Guided Tour

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Hear the stories of the women who lived and worked at Linden Place Mansion through the ages at Linden Place’s “Ladies of Linden Place” Guided Tour, a special docent-led tour offered on select Saturdays 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 generations of DeWolf & Colt women who lived at Linden Place and the 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 Mansion from 1810 through 1986: a slave trader’s wife (Charlotte DeWolf), a widow, who to make ends meet turned Linden Place into a boarding house (Sarah DeWolf), the social “grand dame” of Bristol, Theodora, who saved Linden Place from the auction block and an Oscar award winning actress (Ethel Barrymore), who spent summers at Linden Place.
