Offering a truly unique experience of local history, this superb example of Georgian architecture – a circa 1770 residence – is graced by Colonial-style gardens. All rooms are furnished with 18th- and 19th-century antiques and showcase hundreds of rare objects. Built on the former walls of the 1744 city jail, the house retains many vestiges of its previous incarnation. The property also features a freestanding kitchen house. The four-level terrace gardens are open to the public free of charge year-round during the museum hours; our website has a downloadable self-guided tour. Signature events include Friday evening tours, Fourth Friday Gallery Nights and holiday events.
