This 18th century summerhouse at Linden Place in Bristol Rhode Island is just about the size summerhouse I could afford. It is also earlier than the house (1810) which was built by a privateer, General George DeWolf, whose descendants included United States Rubber founder Samuel Pomery Colt, nephew of the pistol packin' Samuel. Didn't see either tires or guns.

HOT L Providence

Four star boutique hotel developed by Stanley Weiss, it takes advantage of a new plaza carved out of the block, originally suggested in a charrette in the 90's sponsored by Cornish Associates.
Grace Church's steeple gives a nod to the fine space and work done.
