Lovely house with welcoming volunteers. It is well worth seeing if you enjoy historic architecture or want to learn about 18th century life.

Beautifully preserved 1720 Saltbox with welcoming and expert staff. Good programs for adults and kids. Small focused research library. Guided tours Wed - Fri. Collection of historic items.

There are museums that recreate history. Then there is Stanley Whitman house, which is a living recreation of the history. As you walk through the house and listen to living actors playing the role of times, history comes alive. A must visit in Farmington.

I am researching for a historical novel set in Colonial America. I visited the Stanley-Williams house. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour. The house has been renovated well. It was interesting to see a home built around a huge central chimney. The...More
