We were fortunate that one of the few open houses offered at the Crosby Mansion was held during our visit to the Cape. What a treasure! It's got a most interesting history. The tour itself, however, could have been handled better. It began on the second floor, and the greeter at the door on the first floor sent up way... More

Happened to visit during our Cape vacation a few years ago. Only open to the public on certain days....if it happens when you are on the Cape, do visit. Interesting tour, well preserved site.

I had forgotten how beautifully Crosby Mansion has been renovated until I went to Art in Bloom held last month. The exhibit was as good if not better than the one held a bit earlier at the MFA. But aside from the exhibit the mansion enveloped visitors into the past with its marvelous architecture and elegant decor. I'm not sure... More

The Crosby Mansion was the host site for the Nauset Garden Club's "Art in the Garden" recently. This was an excellent venue for the fabulous floral arrangements. Definitely watch for other events!

The Manson is open today Friday June 5th and tomorrow 6th 10-5. $15 in advance $20 at the door. Demonstrations, lovely tea and pastries with the most beautiful floral arrangements to complement the art. All done by the Nauset Garden Club.

Interesting place to visit during a rainy day on the Cape. Just a short drive off of busy Route 6 is the Mansion of a leading historical family on Cape Cod. The property was built as a grand residence and then served time as a residential school During our visit we met the author of a local history book about... More

My wedding party was lucky enough to have a tour of the house before our rehearsal thanks to Brian and his mom, Friends of Crosby Mansion. I grew up playing on the grounds and wondering what was behind the boarded up exterior. It's wonderful to see what the dedicated volunteers have done with this gorgeous piece of history and I'm...

We live on Cape Cod and visited the Crosby Mansion recently for the first time. We know where to take people when they visit us next year! It's such an interesting, historical story of how it came to be and what has happened since it was built. The carpentry in the home is truly amazing and the view is magnificent!
