experience history



  The golden days of summer are finally here.  It's a perfect time to visit the Denison Homestead Museum where you can step back in history and enjoy one of our custom house tours in air conditioned comfort.  Learn about the lives of this family whose roots in this land stretch back to 1654.  Five distinct periods of their history are presented in different rooms filled with family treasures.

   During special events, the keeping room hearth burns brightly and the air is filled with the delicious smell of baking pie and roasting chicken.  Historic exhibits are ongoing and new this year is our Dollhouse Museum where one can peer into fantastic miniature worlds.  Our tour ends with a stroll through the 17th Century Herb Garden and the 1930's Colonial Revival Garden on the windswept sun dappled west lawn.  Afterwards, take time to browse in our delightful gift shop filled with distinctive items large and small.  

    Don't miss the opportunity to experience history made enjoyable for the whole family at the Denison Homestead Museum.  Click on  the Hours page under the Homestead tab for more information, as well as,on our events calendar for our upcoming special events.
