Clouds Hill is a historic house museum at 4157 Post Road in Warwick, Rhode Island. It is located on the estate formerly known as Cedar Hill, a country estate built 1871-77 as a wedding present for Elizabeth Ives Slater Reed by her father, William S. Slater. The main mansion house is a large Gothic Revival structure, designed by noted Providence architect William R. Walker, and is one of his few surviving large-scale residential designs. Both the Slaters and Reeds were leading industrial textile magnates in Rhode Island, and the property contains many examples of high quality Victorian-era workmanship, including a distinctive Egyptian-themed room. The estate was occupied by four generations of Reed descendants, and was converted to a museum in 2004. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2014. The museum is open by appointment, or when events are scheduled.
