Fodor's Review

Marblehead's 18th-century high society is exemplified in this mansion run by the Marblehead Museum and historical society. Colonel Lee was the wealthiest merchant and ship owner in Massachusetts in 1768, and although few original furnishings remain, the unique hand-painted wallpaper and fine collection of traditional North Shore furniture provide clues to the life of an American gentleman. Across the street at the main museum (open year round), the J.O.J. Frost Folk Art

Gallery pays tribute the town's talented 19th-century native son; there are also exhibits focusing on the Civil War.
