“For those who want a bit of education”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

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 a town, so this was the preacher's home. Won't take long at all. They do have offerings of spinning wheels, etc on some days which would require more time spent. Lovely guides in the house.

We visited the manse last year and were amazed at the number of exellent docents and the top notch restoration work which has recently been completed on this property.
