He was the grandson of Gideon & Mathilda Clark Rose.
He was the husband of Adelaide Jenckes Rose.

In the 1870s his father expanded his small Cape-style house into a two-story, mansard-roof hotel, to accommodate the influx of tourists after Old Harbor was created. He named it Woonsocket House for his many guests from that city.

By 1880 Almanza became the proprietor of the Woonsocket House, which became a popular hotel on Block Island. He held that position for many years until his death in 1939. His wife Adelaide died in 1941.

After their death, their property became the location of the Block Island Historical Society. Today it is still the location of the BIHS and has a museum with many diverse exhibits and artifacts related to Block Island's history." Image.
