The Maxwell House
59 Church Street Warren Rhode Island
on the corner of Church and Water Streets
The Maxwell House is an 18th Century Colonial home under careful restoration in an effort to correctly reflect life in Colonial Rhode Island
Originally home of the Maxwell family, it's now a living Historical Museum offering live demonstrations and other educational opportunities about our early American heritage.
Built between 1752 and 1756. The house is believed to be the oldest brick dwelling in Warren. It's distinguished by the distinctive Flemish bond pattern of the brickwork, a field stone foundation, and a large central chimney.
The 10 room house with attic and cellar, has 6 fireplaces, 2 beehive bake ovens, an exposed beam kitchen ceiling and a later clapboard biffy.
The Maxwell House is owned by The Massasoit Historical Association and is maintained as a working museum.
