Hyde-Bridgham House

The Hyde-Bridgham House, formerly located at 120 Pleasant Street, was built on an old foundation around 1767. It is located today at 21 Morra Way. The whole area is newly developed on and around the Brigham farm and you can still find the restored watertower of the old farm when driving through the neighborhood.

The house, a two story five bay Georgian with center chimney, was built by Ephraim Hyde, pastor of Newman congregational church. Dr. Joseph Bridgham purchased it in the 1780s. It was later occupied by his son, Samuel Bridgham, who served in the Rhode Island House of Representatives, was state Attorney General and later the first Mayor of Providence.
