Overview

Welcome to The Sargent House Museum. For over 100 years, the Sargent House Museum was the home of sea merchants, patriots and community leaders. A fine example of high-style Georgian domestic architecture, the house was built in 1782 for Judith Sargent Stevens Murray (1751-1820), a philosopher, writer and an early advocate of women's equality.

The only things positive is that the house is old and sits on a prominent hillside property (at least from the front) so it looks nice, and the director, Zach, was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The issue is that it is hard to determine who...More

I did not go in for the tour. Was magically drawn to the slopping garden. Been visiting in Gloucester a few months, walked by and through the garden watching the season change. Very pretty

I am surprised by the wealth of antiquity and history. Many historical figures who changed the history of the USA are among the list of visitors.

Not the most exciting historic house in the region. Our guide was very knowledgeable, but the story is just not that interesting, particularly if you are not from Gloucester.

As you stroll down the quaint West End of Gloucester's downtown Main Street, you will stumble upon this lovely old historic home. We live in Gloucester and had never taken a tour, yet I pass this house every day on my way to work. So,...More

A great tour with great information about Judith Sargent Murray, a woman who wrote essays that were both brilliant and funny and pointed to equality between men and women long before that was a common perspective. The house had amazing interior detail, furniture and paintings....More

This was one of my favorite places in Gloucester. Judith Sargent Murray was a fascinating woman and just hearing her story was worth the price of admission.
