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.

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.
