Renovations To The Brinton House Start In Fall 2017

The Brinton 1704 House will undergo a major restoration this Fall. Please be advised that between Labor Day 2017 and New Year's Day 2018, the Brinton 1704 House will be under construction.

Drop-in weekend tours have been suspended due to an ongoing restoration. Please email to schedule a special ‘Resoration Tour.’

Please be advised restoration tours may require that visitors navigate uneven surfaces and low structures. Additionally, some objects in the collections may be moved, and windows may be temporarily removed. We will ensure that visitors are safe and comfortable, but the experience will not be that of a usual tour.
