Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Very interesting and informative tour, especially if you love and appreciate history. Spent about an hour and a half here and learned so much. One of the oldest, original houses on Cape Cod with simple, genuine artifacts. If walls could talk....this house has quite a story to tell.
  • Absolutely amazing. A must see for history buffs. Excellent tour guides with detailed info on the house and time period.
