Any History buff or family outing with interested children should spend an hour plus with the sights and docents here. Beautiful 19th century sail boat and fishing fleet models and tales of yore. Perfect rainy day experience.

This house is not open very often, Its a nice take, but the gem is in the basement of the barn, Its a driftwood museum that some person assembled over many years with pieces of driftwood that actually look like real items, people, etc.
