  • The best historical home I've visited in New England so far. It's the oldest, most authentic, most interesting architecturally -- and they're constantly striving to improve the historical accuracy of the property. I can't wait to go back when they uncover the nation's first indoor toilet. (Really) Or when they install plexiglass to the heaters in the basement which vented into the laundry room. Our docent was the most knowledgeable and gave us a thorough your well worth the money.
  • Fun place that always have something going on. A true gem in Waltham.
  • I had a very interesting experience doing the tour. Learned a lot about candles and other things (like snooker). There's a lot of history here and the tour guide was awesome!
  • amazing and historic place in waltham also famous for sheepshearing festival
  • Went here for the 30th annual sheep shearing festival and it was amazing! The girlfriend and I will definitely be going back for a while tour! Who knew Watertown/Waltham MA had such history!
