Fodor's Review

This was a boardinghouse when the Revolutionary War hero lived here while supervising shipbuilding for the Continental Navy. The 1758 hip-roofed structure displays furniture, costumes, glass, guns, portraits, and documents from the late 18th century. The collection specializes in textiles, particularly some extraordinary embroidery samplers from the early 19th century.
