A gorgeous Federal-style mansion that was built in 1810.

The Linden Place mansion was designed by Russell Warren and built for General George DeWolf in 1810. DeWolf was a slave trader, merchant, privateer, and shipowner. The Federal-style architecture of the mansion is inspired by the architecture found in ancient Greece and Rome. It is a great representation of it with its Palladian windows and the fluted Corinthian columns. A Gothic conservatory along with a four-story spiral staircase was added later. Today, the estate is sponsored by a non-profit known as Friends of Linden Place. There are 1.8 acres around the mansion with gardens, an 18th-century gazebo, and many bronze Greek sculptures. The mansion was featured in the 1974 movie The Great Gatsby and in Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North, which was a documentary made in 2008 about the DeWolf family and the legacy of the slave trade in the north of the United States.

Today, visitors can tour the mansion from Tuesday to Friday from 10 am - 4 pm. It is beautifully decorated inside and out and is a historic treasure with wonderful architecture and is filled with historic statues. It is full of original artifacts and was built to welcome a breeze with open doorways through the main hallway. It is ornate, well kept, and has been beautifully restored. The mansion is also used as a wedding venue and for other events, too. Definitely visit the bookstore located here, as well.
