This location has tours for groups that reserve of 6 or more. Nevertheless, it is on a beautiful road that you should take to the top for good views. And although there is no indication, there is a small shed near the house and a driveway that goes around it. We pulled in for no reason and to our surprise, the shed was open on the non-road side. There were many exhibits describing the remarkable life of the Ashley slave who brought a lawsuit and won that was a big part of the end of slavery in Massachusetts (and that was even though her master Ashley was a Revolutionary War hero). This was well worth the time and the house is interesting,as are the filed surrounding it still farmed 250 years later. Also, if you go to Bartholomew's Cobble, less than a half mile away, you walk over more of the land that was the Ashley possessions.

As I wrote concerning the Cobble, this is a must see. Be careful in scheduling as it doesn't have the most user friendly hours, but is totally worth it.

A must see for black history as well as all people interested in freedom. Out on a country road. Not a local tourist trap. Good peek into how colonial people lived.
