Don't miss this one!
Aug 2021
This is one of four houses we toured while we were in Plymouth and it was different. It had actually been the home of a man who had an extensive family history in the area and quite a collection of items. So, it was updated (I believe in the 50's) but left the original elements of the old home. Lots of different items. Interesting history. We really enjoyed the tour and Ann did a great job!

Stopped in on a ghost tour
Apr 2017 • Solo
I am not entirely sure if this place is open to the public during the day anymore. I had the opportunity to stop in on the Dead of Night tour. I would reccommend taking that tour just so you can get inside of this house. It is well maintained with period decorated rooms. If you take the tour, they will also give you a bit of history on the house and some of the artifacts within.

GREAT STOP....
Nov 2016 • Friends
Tiny place that really exemplifies the simplicity and bareness of the early American settlements. With the realization that almost everything needed to be self-made, few "worldly" possessions cluttered the small spaces of settlers. Each piece has a story and functionality was certainly important.

In summary, nice stop appreciated most by adults and history or antique buffs, not really appropriate for too young children.

One Family, one house
Jun 2016 • Couples
This house has been in the same family for generations since the mid 1700's -- the last inhabitant living there until the mid 1950s. Very interesting tour of the house, many features remaining the same over all the time it was in the family. See the picture of the ancestor in the front sitting room -- the telescope he holds in the picture is on the piano in that room! This house is one of a trio supported by the Plymouth Antiquarian Society (the other 2 being the Harlow House and the Hedge House). Tip -- right up the street is a great bakery (Blue Blinds bakery) for a quick nosh.

Loved our end of summer tour of The Spooner House
Aug 2015 • Couples
Our family bought a membership to the Plymouth Antiquarian Society in August and were able to visit the Spooner House before it closed for the year and take a tour with our family.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the house and with Plymouth history in general. Was an hour well spent going back in history. If you want to tour all of their properties it is well worth becoming a member and also having access to their other yearlong offerings.

Spooner House Museum
Feb 2013 • Friends
We ended up at the Spooner House Museum on a cold November night in 2012, we had taken a walking ghost tour. Yes, the house is haunted. Yes, i got pictures of mists & orbs. Yes there were a couple of cold spots. There was a Christmas tree in the corner of the sitting room in the front of the house even tho it wasn`t decorated for Christmas, which was odd. We were only allowed downstairs but i did love the antiques & the exhibits in the house. I must also say we went after Hurricane Sandy & then a Nor`Easter had blown thru so there was some water damage everywhere we went on our visit to Plymouth. I would love to visit it in the summertime

Loved the historical information... went during a "Ghost Tour" but nothing creepy happened. Course you can't make them do anything, but it was still really neat.
