Create an itinerary including Hoxie House
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. Make Hoxie House part of your personalized Sandwich itinerary using our Sandwich holiday builder site.

  • The Hoxie house is one of the oldest homes in Cape Cod. Although restored , is a strong reflection of the colonial architectural style from the 17-century. There’s a small fee collected for a grand tour , however, self tours are also allowed.
  • Very cool history of the oldest house in the cape, the ‘tour guide’ was really fantastic, we learned so much and she kept it entertaining for my kids. Excellent value at $5 per adult.
