One of the most elegant attractions on the SouthCoast is the Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Garden Museum in New Bedford. The Greek Revival mansion and elaborate gardens off County Street offer visitors a glimpse of the property owned by whaling merchant William Rotch, during a time in which New Bedford was considered one of the wealthiest cities in the world. New Director Dawn Salerno joins Townsquare Sunday's Jim Phillips for a conversation about the property, and its past and future role in Historic New Bedford.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
