- Newly restored, the Seril Dodge house in Providence, Rhode Island, is small yet elegant. Built around 1786, the house was bought for Avis Brown after the death of her husband. Robert P. Emlen examines the message sent by the house: that although it was small, there was no doubting the social position and economic status of its widowed occupant.
