Wenham Museum: 17th Century Saturdays

Wenham Museum for families in Wenham MA

Tour the Wenham Museum’s 17th century Claflin-Gerrish-Richards House and discover how families lived during three centuries—from the First Period to the Victorian era.

The Claflin-Richards House was constructed circa 1690 with ogee braces, an architectural hallmark of 16th and 17th century English dwellings. Today it contains three centuries of architecture, furnishings, and artifacts, representing a First Period dwelling room, a late 17th century minister's parlor, a circa 1750 bed chamber, and a Victorian-era chamber. Furnishings include a woolen bed-rug made in 1724, said to be the second oldest such rug in the United States, and an oak dresser built in 1752.
