If you want to see a historical site this is a good one. Doesn't take much time but worth the stop. If the militia are there it's an added bonus

Nice job done recently to restore the site. Informative, even kids could be interested. Go during the Holidays when the decos are a nice addition. Always good to see & hear the local history!

It was a fun short visit. I personally, would rather be outdoors so being in an old house and school house were interesting, but not unlike others I have seen in the past. To be in Dennis, though, it is worth a visit since Dennis is named for this preacher. A town needs a church before it can be called... More
