Explore a colonial Cape Cod house with a twentieth-century flavor. In 1936, Mary Thacher had the Winslow Crocker House moved six miles down the Old King's Highway to its present location. Over a ten-month period, the house was taken apart beam by beam and reassembled next door to her ancestral home in Yarmouth Port. Today it provides an attractive backdrop for Thacher's significant collection of antique furniture, which surveys American styles from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries. Hooked rugs, ceramics, and pwerter add colorful accents to the display. Visitors learn about Thacher's ambitious relocating and remodeling of the house, including changes she made to the paneling, windows and fireplaces. Open June 1- October 15 Second and fourth Saturdays Tours on the hour, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Last tour at 4 p.m. The Winslow Crocker House is one of thirty-six historic properties owned and operated by Historic New England.
