Inside Abbott Hall. The original 'Spirit of 1776' painting is here. A great museum for those interested in American History, especially the U.S.Navy.

The ladies in the gift shop are a treasure trove of information-and the nicest, funniest women!

Old Town in Marblehead is the area of Washington Street, down the hill from Abbot Hall. It has narrow walkways, little shops (gifts/clothing/furniture/ beach&nautical items), historic homes and buildings.

Coming from Sydney, Australia on our first visit to Boston, we decided to stay at the Boston Yacht Club as a reciprocal 'sister" club to the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron (which also has nice accomodation available) even though Marblehead is some 45 minutes by bus to Wonderland and then Metro to the Boston city center. What a great choice that turned out to be ! Marblehead is the most delightful, old,character restored wooden weatherboard houses at every street corner.
: Signs on most of the dwellings inform you who was the original owner like "Captain James Smith,Whaler,1735" and so on. Its charm is everywhere and a stroll along the waterfront which hosts many seafood establishments, all with great character like The Landings or Buccaneers abound.
My wife was so taken with this remarkable and beautiful area that she now wants to come back again for a further stay and for at least a week...apart from the fact that Boston reeks with British and early American history,, we found Bostonians and Americans everywhere just seem to 'love" us Aussies!
I have to add that the Boston YC with its recently renovated bedrooms and en suites was a wonderful place to rest ourselves and made us most welcome. That's the advantage of being a member of some club which has affiliations abroad...

But if you are in this State sometime, do not miss seeing Marblehead and some of the other lovely areas like Salem and Providence too.

The Marblehead Museum always has a great rotating exhibit regarding an aspect of Marblehead history in its front gallery on the first floor. Upstairs is the fantastic gallery of JOJ Frost paintings that are well worth the visit for children and adults alike. Across the street from the museum is the Jeremiah Lee Mansion, also run by the museum. The museum's website is www.marbleheadmuseum.org
FYI, Abbot Hall (with the Spirit of '76 painting) is up the street at 188 Washington Street--also well worth the visit while you're in the area.
