I brought my boys here July 4. Everyone was dressed in period clothing. All staff were so welcoming and knowledgeable. House was in beautiful shape and work was being done on the grounds. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting RI.

Being a history teacher, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see the Homestead. Nathanael was an important part of the American Revolution. The tour guide was informative and the home is well preserved.
