If your into history this is a must see. Recently restored original home of the Rev. Dennis shows what life was like in 17th century Dennis. Period dressed staff are very knowledgeable and Dennis days include local militia. Easy access from 6a. Air conditioned!

Nice job done recently to restore the site. Informative, even kids could be interested. Go during the Holidays when the decos are a nice addition. Always good to see & hear the local history!
