The Wentworth's Esteemed History

1865 - 1887

Francis Silas Rodgers, a wealthy cotton factor, phosphate manufacturer and coastwise shipper marries Marie Elizabeth Evans Cochran and together they raise 13 children. Designed by architect Daniel G. Waynes, they build their expansive and beautiful home at 149 Wentworth Street.

1920

Members of the Rodgers' family sold the home to the Scottish Rite Cathedral Association for $100,000. The Scottish Rite Masons kept the home until 1940 when they sold it to The Atlantic Coast Insurance Company who used it as their office headquarters until 1996.

1997

Proprietor Richard Widman purchased The Wentworth Mansion and began an extensive $7 million renovation that preserved historic features including the inlaid floors, original staircase, and Tiffany glass and added modern conveniences and luxurious bathrooms transforming the home into a one-of-a-kind historic hotel experience.

"The gracious, efficient staff at the Wentworth Mansion makes you feel as though you are coming home. They anticipate and cater to your every need. The property is lovely and the outdoor space is especially welcoming in a city setting. It's always a pleasure to return to the Wentworth."
