My first book is available in paperback and ebook on Amazon.
Visit the house museums of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket and explore the rich history the area has to offer. Learn about clipper ships, the China Trade, the whaling industry, Native American history and so much more. Tour the homes of ship captains, artists, religious leaders, farmers and industrialists.
The 35 house museums described in this book vary widely from modest homes built in the 1600s to mansions built for entertaining high society. Each description includes practical information that will help when planning a visit.
Every house has a story to tell. At the Cobb House in Brewster, see the first known photograph of Helen Keller with her teacher Anne Sullivan. On Nantucket, learn about the comet discovered by Maria Mitchell, America’s first woman astronomer. In Falmouth, take in an art exhibit in an 18,000-square-foot mansion.
The year 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims in the New World. It is the perfect time to plan a trip to Cape Cod where it all began. Tour any one of the historic properties described in this book and begin to imagine what life was like for those who came before us.
