On the Perquimans River, learn the story of Abraham and Judith Sanders, a colonial Quaker family. Dating to 1730, the house is has been authentically restored and features period reproduction furnishings, enormous fireplaces, pine woodwork, and a winding corner stair. It helps recapture the rugged charm of early 18th-century life. A seasonal garden features herbs and flowering plants used by early settlers for dyeing, medicinal purposes, culinary uses and decoration. The Museum Shop features an eclectic array of merchandise including locally handmade pottery, jewelry and books on local history.

Also onsite is the Periaguer, a double-masted 30-foot boat; while a replica, it is the only known example of the work boats of the Colonial era. It sails from Hertford Bay Marina and other local waterfront festivals.
