Hoxie House, Sandwich

4.5
Take a trip back in time at Hoxie House, one of the oldest houses in New England. Built in the mid-17th century, this traditional saltbox house belonged in turn to a separatist reverend and a 19th-century whaling captain. Restored and furnished to reflect early colonial architecture, the house features a long, steeply pitched roof and wooden shingle facade, with two stories in the front and one in the back. Examine the hearth with rustic traditional cooking tools and enter a bedroom covered with rugs. Examine the old timber frame construction with hallmark gunstock posts, pumpkin pine beams, and wide floorboards.
