  Odlin-Otis House
by Ewingjr98

The Odlin-Otis House was constructed around 1705. Over the years the house was slowly expanded and modified to add rooms, and it even became a duplex in the 1800s. The Newport Restoration Foundation purchased the home in 1972 and completed restorations in 1976-1977. They returned the house to much of its original form to include an early color.

The original builder of the house is believed to be John Odlin. By 1758 ownership had transferred to Jonathan Otis. Otis was a silversmith from Massachusetts who worked in Newport from 1750 until the American Revolution; he sold the house in 1788.
