Home first of Charles S. Bradley, former Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court and father of George L. Bradley. By the late 1880s, George Bradley became the primary financier of the construction of the privately owned Florida Coast Line Canal & Transportation Company which would later become Florida’s Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. George grew up in his father’s home, one of George’s three principal residences throughout his life. Today, the home is St. Martin Hall of Providence College. The college bought the residence from the Estate of George Lothrop Bradley after he died in 1906. It should be noted that several references, including Wikipedia, improperly state that George’s middle initial was “M.”
