In observance of Black History Month, Linden Place Museum will offer a special presentation on Bristol’s DeWolf family and its involvement with the triangle slave trade. The DeWolfs, Bristol’s premier family of the 18th and early 19th centuries, were once one of New England’s largest traders of slaves. The presentation will cover Bristol’s lengthy and profitable involvement in the slave trade in the historic Federal-style mansion that was built by architect Russell Warren for George DeWolf.
