Hoxie House, Sandwich

(130+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Take a trip back in time at Hoxie House, one of the oldest houses in New England. Built in the mid-17th century, this traditional saltbox house belonged in turn to a separatist reverend and a 19th-century whaling captain. Restored and furnished to reflect early colonial architecture, the house features a long, steeply pitched roof and wooden shingle facade, with two stories in the front and one in the back. Examine the hearth with rustic traditional cooking tools and enter a bedroom covered with rugs. Examine the old timber frame construction with hallmark gunstock posts, pumpkin pine beams, and wide floorboards. A visit to Hoxie House represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sandwich holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • My most favorite place to go when I visit the Cape I always bring guests and ask for the full presentation with the history and key words. Best $4 I have ever spent.
  • The guides are all very friendly and knowledgable with some great stories about the origin of phrases that we use in day to day life.
  • The are two ladies who are awesome and tell you all the history about everything and it's all interesting
  • Cool house but I wish you didn't have to pay just to walk through on your own.
  • Fun historical place
