Lovely mansion to visit and learn about it's history.. the grander building on the picture wraps around a small cottage that was the original owner's parents home. The garden club has a decorator's holiday showhouse there every few years(like this year 2013)well worth the visit. The rooms show off the splendor of days gone by.. think Downton Abbey ala Cape...

Crosby Mansion in Brewster,MA is a work in progress. We enjoyed our tour where every area of the mansion has a well- informed docent. You will enjoy the tales of this family which is quite different than the owners of the Rhode Island mansions. Beautiful area and just steps from the Crosby Beach for swimming on the bay

We had the chance to tour this Mansion and it was absolutely incredible. Mr. Crosby loved his home but his wife wanted something more elaborate so a beautiful mansion was built around his home which then turned out to be his man cave. There are beautiful views from the second floor, gorgeous rooms, amazing furniture and the guides were very... More

Formerly a private house and a beautiful Victorian mansion. It is open every other Sunday for tours. Don't miss it. Located by the scenic Crosby Beach. They are putting in bathrooms soon so that they can have larger functions. Walk around it; it's beautiful

The historical society put a lot of work into this and was able to bring it back to the beautiful house it once was. It was a treat to walk through and see all what the house looked like and to learn the history of it.

This is a special place that the town of Brewster as well as the State Of Mass have made some grant Money to fix up and the local people have done a great job in fixing it up.

On a trip to Cape Cod driving through Brewster I came across a hidden treasure. Out of curiosity we drove down Crosby Lane off Rt 6A across from Nickerson State Park and discovered the Crosby Mansion. Knowing that it was not my ancestral home, but sharing the same name, and as a lover of history, I wanted to see more... More
