Located in the center of an historic district, the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum provides the quintessential New England experience. During the museum's informative and entertaining tours, visitors are immersed in life of mid-18th and early 19th centuries with many a tale of the charm, hardship and political intrigue of that era.
Three meticulously restored homes are included in the one-hour tour. The 1752 Joseph Webb House, which served as George Washington's headquarters in May 1781, and was later owned by artist and antiquarian Wallace Nutting. The Silas Deane House, circa 1770, was built for America's Revolutionary War diplomat to France as both his residence and as a power base for his political aspirations. The Isaac Stevens House, 1789, depicts the life of a middle class family in the 1820s and 1830s using many original family possessions.
Save time for a stroll through the lovely Colonial Revival Garden, designed by one of America's first female landscape architects. The Webb House gift shop offers unusual and finely-crafted treasures for the home and the holidays, wedding and hostess gifts.
