Description:

Home for the Museum since 1916, the Griswold House is a National Historic Landmark and an Official Project of Save America's Treasures. Designed in 1862 by famed architect Richard Morris Hunt, it was completed in 1864 for John N.A. Griswold, a China Trade merchant and financier. Griswold House was Hunt's first major commission in Newport and is the premier example of American Stick Style architecture. Hunt went on to design many of the grand cottages of Newport's Gilded Age, including The Breakers, Marble House, and Ochre Court.

The Griswold House currently houses restored rooms, galleries, a children's art classroom, administrative offices, a lecture hall, and the Griffon Shop. The surrounding park and sculpture garden is used for many outdoor programs during the summer months.
