Annmary Brown Memorial
Also known as:  Rhode Island Historical Cemetery Providence #33

General Rush Christopher Hawkins commisioned the Memorial Library after the death of his wife, on the condition that he and his wife could be interred there. It housed his European and American art collection and a collection of rare books and manuscripts, Civil War memorabilia and personal correspondence of the Hawkinses. The memorial was deeded to Brown University in 1948 and in 1990 the books and manuscripts were relocated to the John Hay Library. The graves of Annmary and Rush Hawkins are in a crypt at the rear of the memorial. The Annmary Brown Memorial today houses the Art collection, family momentos, and the two bodies.
