Wonderful old house set in the midst of busy little town. The grounds are gorgeous, the gardens to be envied. Love a little piece of history here in Edgartown.

We arrived just before closing time but the docent still gave us a tour around the house and told us the history of the house and the people who lived there. It was fascinating and we're grateful she was kind enough to do this. Fascinating house and we learnt a lot about the history of Cape houses which we then... More
