The Wenham Museum and the Patton Family are continuing the collaboration started during the museum’s annual Military History Day by offering public tours of the Patton Family Archives.
This vast collection chronicles the life and legacy of one of America’s premier military families who resided here on Boston’s North Shore. The Archives are also an untapped, unparalleled resource regarding the service and sacrifice of Maj. Gen. Patton and his troops during the Korean and Vietnam Wars and that of his wife, Joanne Holbrook Patton, on the home front.
Guided tours are offered at select dates and times and are available only by advanced online reservation through the Wenham Museum. Tours are one-and-a-half hours in length. Payment is required at the time of booking.
In celebration and commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the Wenham Museum, in collaboration with the town of Hamilton and the Patton Homestead Inc, is offering additional tours of the Homestead and Archives the week of June 1st – 6th. These 30 minute tours are listed below. Visit https://pattonhomestead.org/75thanniversary for additional information on the festivities for the week. Please note: Rain Date for the June 1st tours is Sunday, June 2nd.
Tours are $15.00 for members of the Wenham Museum and $20.00 for nonmembers and include General Admission to the museum’s main location at 132 Main Street, Wenham, Massachusetts.
