Patriot Houses Tour at Marblehead Museum

  • Marblehead Museum 170 Washington St Marblehead, MA (map)

The privately-owned tour houses include 147 Washington Street (Nathaniel Hooper House), 185 Washington Street (William R. Lee House), and 69 Pleasant Street (John Glover Hooper House), and 2 others! 10am-3pm.
