We were fortunate that one of the few open houses offered at the Crosby Mansion was held during our visit to the Cape. What a treasure! It's got a most interesting history. The tour itself, however, could have been handled better. It began on the second floor, and the greeter at the door on the first floor sent up way... More

Happened to visit during our Cape vacation a few years ago. Only open to the public on certain days....if it happens when you are on the Cape, do visit. Interesting tour, well preserved site.

BEAUTIFUL place staffed by devoted, friendly volunteers who love the place. Not open very often, so if you have a chance to go, GO!

I had forgotten how beautifully Crosby Mansion has been renovated until I went to Art in Bloom held last month. The exhibit was as good if not better than the one held a bit earlier at the MFA. But aside from the exhibit the mansion enveloped visitors into the past with its marvelous architecture and elegant decor. I'm not sure... More

The Crosby Mansion was the host site for the Nauset Garden Club's "Art in the Garden" recently. This was an excellent venue for the fabulous floral arrangements. Definitely watch for other events!

The property was built as a grand residence and then served time as a residential school During our visit we met the author of a local history book about... More

My wedding party was lucky enough to have a tour of the house before our rehearsal thanks to Brian and his mom, Friends of Crosby Mansion. I grew up playing on the grounds and wondering what was behind the boarded up exterior. It's wonderful to see what the dedicated volunteers have done with this gorgeous piece of history and I'm...
