We were too early (9am) to check out the inside of the house but that was okay. A short walk around the buildings and little garden was worth it. Pair this up with a visit to Naumkeag (it is just down the street).

It was nice to see the effort Mable Choate put into restoring this historic colonial house even if all the details are not historically accurate.

Not a large site, nor entirely historically accurate, but the house and small associated museum offer interesting information about the white settlement of the area. Well worth a visit if it is open when you are passing.
