During the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum’s informative and entertaining one-hour tours, visitors are immersed in life during the mid-18th and early-19th centuries, with many a tale of the charm, hardship, and political intrigue of the era.
Three meticulously restored homes are included: See the 1752 Joseph Webb House, where General George Washington and French General Rochambeau planned the military campaign that led to victory and the end of the American Revolutionary War. The Silas Deane House, circa 1770, was built in grand style for America’s Revolutionary War diplomat to France. The Isaac Stevens House details the life of a middle-class family in the early 1800s, with original family possessions and a fascinating toy exhibit.
Save time for a stroll through the lovely Colonial Revival Garden, designed by one of America’s first female landscape architects, and ask to see the Webb Barn, where we host elegant weddings in a charmingly rustic setting.
