The yellow and white home with views of Cape Cod Bay was once the home of native son Albert Crosby. Crosby moved to Chicago and made his fortune making distilled alcohol which was sold to the army during the Civil War. At the Chicago Opera House, which he owned, he met and married one of his show girls, 20-years younger... More

This unique house has a lot of stories to tell. It is being lovingly restored bit by bit by the Friends of the Crosby Mansion. On Sunday afternoons in the summer it is open to the public for a very small fee--visit and learn about the interesting structure of the house and its history.

The Crosby Mansion in Brewster is a 35-room page from Cape Cod’s history that is well worth a visit any time you happen to be in the area when they are hosting Open Houses. I had the fortunate opportunity to visit the Crosby Mansion during the Nauset Garden Club’s “Tis the Season” – 2016 Christmas at the Crosby Mansion, and... More

From what I can gather this site is only open for 4 Sundays in Aug. ? May be open in June for Brewster in Bloom or at a special event during Christmas. Watch local papers for info. The preservation society runs open houses for a $5 donation, but higher entry amounts at other times due to fund raising of other's... More

We were fortunate that one of the few open houses offered at the Crosby Mansion was held during our visit to the Cape. What a treasure! It's got a most interesting history. The tour itself, however, could have been handled better. It began on the second floor, and the greeter at the door on the first floor sent up way... More

Happened to visit during our Cape vacation a few years ago. Only open to the public on certain days....if it happens when you are on the Cape, do visit. Interesting tour, well preserved site.

I had forgotten how beautifully Crosby Mansion has been renovated until I went to Art in Bloom held last month. The exhibit was as good if not better than the one held a bit earlier at the MFA. But aside from the exhibit the mansion enveloped visitors into the past with its marvelous architecture and elegant decor. I'm not sure... More

The Crosby Mansion was the host site for the Nauset Garden Club's "Art in the Garden" recently. This was an excellent venue for the fabulous floral arrangements. Definitely watch for other events!
