The Winslow Crocker House was moved to its present location in Yarmouth Port, MA, in 1936 by antique collector and preservationist, Miss Mary Thatcher. There are fine architectural details in every room of this shingled two story house built around 1780. It was obviously built by a fine craftsman.
Being able to walk through the rooms of this house with no ropes to separate me from the furnishings was wonderful. Miss Thatcher's colledtion covers all periods of American furniture, with pieces dating from the early 1680's to the middle of the 18th century.
As a lover of antiques, this house presented a rare opportunity to get "up close and personal" with a fine collection of American antiques.
