This former inn, that at the time was in the middle of nowhere, is now surrounded by modern homes and a busy, but beautiful East Avenue. But the home is well able to transport visitors to what it felt like to arrive by stage coach or horseback for a light supper and a cup of ale - and a warm, lumpy bed. The area around the house still has orchards of old, bulgy fruit trees fenced with split rails. The volunteers are well versed and friendly.

Really a unique and very interesting place with quite the history! The stories surrounding the lighthouse are very interesting. During the Revolutionary War.....there is history about how the soldiers and people of the area circulated around the lighthouse to fool the British into thinking there was an endless supply of soldiers defending the area..and they retreated. The walk up the tiny stairs is worth the look out at the top. Take your kids. You will enjoy it too.

I absolutely LOVE the Susan B. Anthony house. This is probably one of the best historical sights I have ever seen in America. The staff here are wonderful and provide very detailed and informational tours. The price is so reasonable and it is really the most informational, educational and enjoyable experience. I love the amount of historical content provided in the tour and on site. This is great for those interested in women's rights and local history.
