Very Interesting Wing Fort House

One word - Incredible. This home has been owned by the same family for over 300 years. It's amazing that a house like this still exists. Loved the tour and the stories.

I enjoy visiting this house on my trips to Cape Cod. The caretaker is excellent. His knowledge of the property and colonial history/beliefs really brings it to life. Lots of interesting things to see in the house. Worth a visit!

When my family visited the Wing Fort House this was the second time I had visited it. The first time was in the late 60's as a teen. At that time there were few furnishings, but was interesting because I am a Wing. The second time was with my teen daughter who took all kinds of pictures, inside and out.... More

Hey, ladies, check out the tall, handsome silver fox that runs the place. Oh, the house was very, very interesting, too.

This site is beautifully located, quiet, and historically important. Our tour guide was the best I've ever experienced. He knew all about the house and local history, and was a professional archaeologist who used his knowledge to illuminate the story of the house and its residents. The interior spaces are interesting for anyone looking for actual colonial history and I'm... More

If you want to see an old house with lots of different artefacts through the ages, this is the place for you. Lots of rooms, all dressed in different ages ranges.

I am a descendant of John Wing and a Friend and as such this was like walking on hallowed ground. My 10x great grandfather's homestead area, the native encampment and the home itself all expertly explained by a professional archaeologist made this stop so worthwhile. The home dates to 1641 and contains family mementos from all kinds of eras from... More

We are Stephen Wing descendants and went to the Wing Fort House for the first time last week. It was amazing to see this place which is so well preserved. The curator is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I took about a million pics to create an album for the Wings who are getting together next weekend and... More

Wow, I can't believe I am the 9th great granddaughter of Stephen Wing who owned the Wing Fort House back in the 1600s! I just had to go visit it and it was well worth it. The curator knew so much and was very helpful.
