I visited the Warner House as part of a larger adventure of visiting many historic homes throughout New England. Thus it is hard for me to avoid comparisons. This house is certainly rich in history, and it was well presented by the kind and delightfully effusive female docent we had. The murals are most interesting…. but the overall impression was one of dreary shabbiness.
The house is dark and looks and 'feels' tired…. it in no way reflects the richness, grandeur and light one finds in a typical Georgian style home of the period - and certainly not appropriate for the home of the Royal Govenor. Despite all the brilliant light of our docent, we came away rather disappointed.
