An interesting home from a prominent family of the 18th century. It has been restored nicely and the interior is fully furnished. You also tour a smaller house built for the tenant who ran the ferry. Certainly worth the visit.

There is a parking lot right by the house. The house is now closed for the Pumpkin Blaze through December.
