The interior has Federal, Greek Revival, and Late Victorian-style design elements. The building housed the Salisbury Academy girls' school from about 1820 to 1825.

  • One of my favorite places in Salisbury! Love the history! And what has been done to the house in recent years has been very well done. Great job! The volunteers are always welcoming and full of information.
  • I very much enjoyed the tour of this beautiful house. The tour guides had so much information to share and it was fascinating to hear about the transformations this building underwent throughout its history. The only thing I wish this museum and others would include would be the stories from the African American community's perspective. They were undoubtedly part of this history, and it would only enrich the experience to hear from them directly as well.
