“Interesting home”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

The Palmer house was informative. There was a lot of information available but we felt rushed. Not a relaxing time. A missed opportunity for us.

“Elegant home from a bygone era”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2010

Old mansion from the 1820s, Captain Palmer's claim to fame while on a seal hunt expedition that he was the first to see the Antartic. He is one of three early explorers to make this claim. His home is a well appointed home full of period furnishings. The rooms have high ceilings with beautiful marble fireplaces. I was allowed to climb to the cupola which has commanding views of the harbor. A must see if you are into local history.
