This Stunning Home on the West End of Providence Has a Dark History

One of the great things about exploring a new city is looking around and wondering about the history of the homes and businesses you are passing. Especially in a city as old as Providence, Rhode Island, you can be sure that a huge chunk of the buildings you pass have a compelling past that is worthy of some more research. Sadly sometimes not much is known about a spot no matter how fascinating it may look, but luckily, Providence historians are pretty good at digging up the past and making sure we know about it, like with this gorgeous home on the West End.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

If you’re intrigued by this story, there is a book written by Josephine’s great grandson that goes into more detail about the case and is entitled A Revolting Transaction. Will you be taking a walk down Broadway to observe Barnaby Castle closer? Or maybe visiting their (traditionally) annual Halloween Soiree which you can get more information about on the houses Facebook page?

Address: Barnaby Castle, 299 Broadway, Providence, RI 02903, USA
