Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 29, 1989):
Architecturally, this is one of the finest Georgian houses in America. In style, it summarizes and concludes that period of late Georgian architecture in Providence; in size and quality it is distinguished even among its neighboring structures, which have been called "one of the great groups of early post-Republican houses in the country."
