The General James Mitchell Varnum House is an historic house at 57 Peirce Street in East Greenwich, Rhode Island . The 2-1/2 story wood frame house was built in 1773 for James Mitchell Varnum , who later served as a general in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War . It is five bays wide, with two interior brick chimneys. Its main entry is sheltered by a portico supported by fluted Ionic columns and pilasters. A 19th-century addition extends from the rear of the main block. Notable later residents of the house include George A. Brayton , who served as Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court . The house was purchased in 1939 by the Varnum Continentals, and has since served as a museum. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
