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.
