  • Off the beaten path. Quaint and inviting. Landscape is well mentained and unlike many - especially for museums as it's easier to work on level ground. Beautiful pond with educational signage on wildlife. And wildlife there is. Just who runs it and why aren't people actively going here? It was prime hours for someone to be Manning fort. Oh well and to be frank, not sure if this is a downside...Could just be the exact opposite.
  • Wonderful, historic birthplace of Gilbert Stuart, a prolific portrait artist who painted 6 sitting Presidents and much more. Dave, our guide, gives a very informative tour, nearly an hour long....fantastic for a $10 admission fee! The grounds are green and peaceful and you can wander some trails on your own if you wish. My elderly parents also enjoyed it!
  • Beautiful scenery and amazing History of RI all in one place. Great for Weddings or just to take the tour . Well worth the time .
  • Enjoyed the visit very much. A hidden gem!
  • off the beaten path worth the stop
