Whether large and fancy gentlemen’s estates, or humble but meticulously preserved farmsteads, Hingham’s houses reveal the day to day life of a 380-year old New England community as it was lived by the carpenters, farmers, coopers, drapers, shoemakers, and lumber barons who called this year’s tour houses “home”. This year’s tour also includes a tiny gem of a museum that explores the history of the intentionally obscure naval munitions depot that supplied American war ships from World War I through
World War II.
The Society is indebted to the wonderful team of volunteers that puts the House Tour together every year, and to the Board of Directors, and our tour day volunteers. Thank you.
Enjoy the tour!
