Take advantage of summer weather with a special guided tour focused on the statuary, outbuildings and gardens at Linden Place, the 1810 Federal-style mansion located in downtown Bristol.
Explore the historic Linden Place sculpture and rose gardens while you learn the history of the man who developed the property as we see it now, Samuel Pomeroy Colt. In this time of Covid, a garden tour is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors and learn something new, while being socially distant. Hear the stories behind the Greco-Roman statuary, view the 200-year old coach and garage and learn the legend of the “rampant colts” that are scattered throughout the lawns. Discover the direct ties between Linden Place and Colt State Park and learn some of the beloved park's background. As you tour the grounds, you will have a chance to appreciate the 200-year-old mansion from a different view. Face masks will be required, as well as social distancing to make the tour both safe and enjoyable.
The tour will take place Friday, July 10th at 10:30am. Admission is $12, $10 for seniors and students. Reservations are required. Call (401)253-0390 to reserve a spot or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
