Judge Alfred Bosworth House

-A A +A
c. 1840, possibly Russell Warren. 21 Federal St.

This Greek Revival house with a full-blown, two-story Ionic portico has such fine proportions and detailing that it has been attributed to Russell Warren. It passed through a period as a popular ice cream parlor, Maxfield's (a name now better known locally than the judge's). Its full portico, rare in Rhode Island Greek Revival houses, shines through, and anything that might be by Warren is worth looking at.
