Get the combination ticket with the Joshua Chamberlain house tour - it's well worth the price. The Skolfield Whittier house is a true snapshot in time, and well worth the trip.

Enjoyed seeing this house so much. It's a time capsule for the life of a wealthy Victorian family. Did not disappoint. A one hour tour - started on the hour.
