The 1827 Caleb Nickerson House Museum at 1107 Orleans Road (Route 28) in Chathamport is owned by the Nickerson Family Association, inc., founded in 1897 in Chatham, Massachusetts by William Emery Nickerson. The Caleb House was built in the Stage Harbor area of Chatham and was moved in 2003 to the Nickerson Family Association property in Chathamport that also includes the homestead site of the first English settlers of Chatham, William & Anne (Busby) Nickerson. The Caleb Nickerson House Museum is a "working" museum of life on Cape Cod in the early 19th century. The museum, adjacent to the Nickerson Family Association Genealogy Center, is open on Wednesday mornings during the late spring to early fall and by appointment.
