Get the combination ticket with the Joshua Chamberlain house tour - it's well worth the price. The Skolfield Whittier house is a true snapshot in time, and well worth the trip.

We were looking forward to touring this time capsuled home of a late nineteenth century ship captain's family. Unfortunately, the tours do not begin until the end of May!

Enjoyed seeing this house so much. It's a time capsule for the life of a wealthy Victorian family. Did not disappoint. A one hour tour - started on the hour.

The tour guide was excellent, took her time in showing us everything. One of the few historic homes where the family evidently left everything intact, just up and left. Very interesting.

I saw the review on the chamberlain house that this house basically kicked that house's butt so we rerouted ourselves to pop in. It did not disappoint. Thank god for three generations of quirky hoarders. This place is the best preserved historical home I've seen...More

What a find! A house that has set through generations, owned by families that hardly got rid of anything. A step back in time, making you feel like the owners of the home could still be present. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and really...More
