Fodor's Review

The only whaling-era mansion on its original grounds open to the public, the Rotch-Jones-Duff (RJD) House and Garden Museum chronicles the economic, social, and political evolution of the city. Originally built in 1834, the Greek Revival mansion, which is located on a full city block of gardens a half-mile south of downtown, tells the story of the three prominent families who called it home in the 1800s. The museum is filled with elegant furnishings from the era, including a mahogany piano, a massive marble-top sideboard, and portraits of the house's occupants. A free self-guided audio tour is available.
