6th Annual Heart of the Home Kitchen Tour
to benefit the Wenham Museum
Be inspired by extraordinary kitchens on the North Shore on the 6th Annual Heart of the Home Kitchen Tour to benefit Wenham Museum. Visit traditional and contemporary homes that highlight interior design in the room that is the heart of every home—the kitchen. Complete your tour at the museum, with a visit to a display of historic household items and the colonial hearth in the ca. 1690 Claflin-Richards House, one of America’s early kitchens. Proceeds of this event benefit the Wenham Museum, including preservation of the circa 1690 Claflin-Richards House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
