Discover how families lived during three centuries—from the First Period to the Victorian era—in the Claflin-Gerrish-Richards House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and one of the earliest dwellings on the North Shore. Of particular interest are the original Ogee braces, an architectural detail typically found in 16th-century English dwellings, and a 1724 woolen bed-rug made for a Wenham bride, the second oldest such rug known to exist in the United States. The Claflin-Gerrish-Richards House may be viewed by guided tour.
