Keillor House and St. James Museum

Keillor House and St. James Museum Review

An early Regency stone house built in 1813, Keillor House contains thousands of artifacts relating to mid-19th-century life, and docents are in costume. Its Coach House contains a fascinating collection of artifacts from the Dorchester Penitentiary. Just a minute away on foot is the St. James Museum. This former church building now contains the Beachkirk Collection of equipment used in the manufacturing of textiles, including antique looms. You can sometimes see demonstrations of carding, spinning, and weaving, and there are also blacksmiths' and carpenters' tools.
