Carrie Taylor is the first director of the Governor Henry Lippitt House Museum, a brick and brownstone 1865 Renaissance Revival villa in Providence, Rhode Island’s historic East Side. Prior to leading Lippitt House, Carrie was the Collections Manager at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home outside of Charlottesville, Virginia for 15 years.

About the Museum - Heir to one of Rhode Island’s leading textile manufacturing families, Henry Lippitt (1818-1891) designed and supervised the construction from 1863-1865 of the brick and brownstone house at 199 Hope Street in Providence. Occupied by generations of the Lippitt family before becoming a museum in 1993, the house is a three story, thirty rooms Renaissance Revival villa. Embellished with elaborate interior decorative finishes, colorful stained glass windows, ornate woodwork, and surviving original furnishings, the house is a time capsule of Victorian design.
