As a decendant of the Mayflower and member of the society, my wife was honored to visit the home. It is beautiful and the people there were very welcoming and kind.

The Mayflower Society House is a marvelous piece of architecture, furnished with items appropriate to it's age, and beautifully preserved. The stairway in the house is worthy of a visit all by itself! The docents are extremely well informed, and provide an excellent description of the history of the house and its owners. This is a Don't Miss!

You will find here all you want to know about the PIlgrims. The staff is very helpful in searching your potential Mayflower roots and will assist you in joining their Society should you qualify and desire to do so.

All of our research had already been accomplished so the library offered us nothing and the house, while mildly interesting, is not as interesting as many of the other homes we toured in the area.

A beautiful mansion that preserves this period and serves as a location for the Society. The Society has been very helpful in finding our roots and preserve the true heritage of these courageous travelers.

First be advised - there is no A/C here, BUT - it's definitely a tour worth taking. The home is breathtakingly beautiful. There is a bunch of history in this home and the women did a fabulous job explaining everything to us. Inexpensive.

Found records tracing my family back to the Mayflower and William Bradford. Found we were eligible for membership to the Mayflower Society.
