    Heir to one of Rhode Island’s leading textile manufacturing families, Henry Lippitt (1818-1891) designed and supervised the construction from 1863-1865 of the brick and brownstone house at 199 Hope Street in Providence. Occupied by generations of the Lippitt family before becoming a museum in 1993, the house is a three story, thirty room Renaissance Revival villa. Embellished with elaborate interior decorative finishes, colorful stained glass windows, ornate woodwork, and surviving original furnishings, the house is a time capsule of Victorian design. The Museum offers guided tours, special exhibitions, educational programs, concerts, and supports original research. Guided tours explore Lippitt House as an example of how cultural and social changes accompanying industrialization impacted one family and the architecture, furnishings, and even the mechanical systems in their high-style house. Lippitt House Museum is a Preserve Rhode Island property.
