The Art of Christmas at Historic Linden Place Mansion


Stunning decorations and original artwork, concerts, parties and our annual family day await you at the 200-year old mansion!


A towering Christmas tree framed by a four-story spiral staircase, elegant decorations on every mantle and in every nook and cranny, original artwork by top local artists…these are just a few of the many delights that await you this Christmas season at Linden Place Mansion in downtown Bristol, Rhode Island.  

This year, the elegant décor throughout the 1810 mansion is complimented by original artwork by members of the Providence Art Club including watercolors, pastels, ceramics, illustrations and prints, oil paintings, and more.

The mansion’s parlors, bedrooms, and magnificent chapel-like Gothic conservatory are magnificently transformed for your enjoyment.
