Former summer home of Pennsylvania coal magnate, Augustus Van Wickle, this charming forty-five room, turn-of-the-century mansion and thirty-three acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens overlook Narragansett Bay and historic Bristol harbor. One of the first and most innovative arboreta in America, it features more than 50,000 flowering spring bulbs, a 100-foot Giant Sequoia, a bamboo grove, and numerous gardens, including a rock garden, a rose garden and a water garden. Signs throughout detail the estate's history.
