About Home to Two Revolutions: Tour of the Old Manse

We are thrilled to announce the reopening of the interior of the Old Manse with the return of the “Home to Two Revolutions” house tour. Beginning on July 17th the house will be open for tours Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays (Closed Monday-Thursday).

Home to Two Revolutions – From the American Revolution of 1775 through the literary revolution of the mid-19th century, on this house tour we share the stories of Manse residents, both the famous and the lesser-known, who influenced and responded to the 19th century social, political and cultural changes that helped to define the American nation.

Weather permitting, tours will begin outdoors with an introduction and welcome prior to entering the house. Upon arrival, please check in the book store.

Masks are strongly encouraged for all guests while visiting indoors spaces. Tour groups are set with a limited capacity and we recommend booking in advance to secure your spot.

Tours are on the hour with the last tour of the day beginning at 4PM. Space is limited and advanced registration is recommended.

Please note that the historic house is not air conditioned and can get quite warm on summer days. Learn more about accessibility on our website.
