Guided Tours of the Dr. Moses Mason House

July 1, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - August 27, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

Begun in 1813, the historic Dr. Moses Mason House is a fine Federal style residence that opened as a museum in 1974.

Discover life as it was lived in the highlands of western Maine during the first half of the nineteenth century as you join one of our trained guides in a tour of nine rooms filled with fine examples of the decorative arts, many of which were in the house during the years of the Masons’ occupancy (1813-1869). During your tour, you will view portraits of Dr. and Mrs. Mason painted during the 1830s by Chester Harding of Boston, and view their grand entrance hall with its exceptional circa 1835 Rufus Porter School wall murals.

July & August, Thursday through Saturday, 1:00 to 4:00 PM; and year-round by appointment (207-824-2908).
