Adult Group Tour 

Enjoy a guided tour of the Phelps-Hatheway House that examines the lives and experiences of the first two owners, Shem Burbank and Oliver Phelps. Although the two lived during the same period, they experienced the events of the late 18th century in very different ways and their fortunes, or lack-thereof, resulted from their political views on The American Revolution.

Guests will also explore the House's outstanding architecture. The two architectural periods of the Phelps-Hatheway House further demonstrate the differences in Burbank's and Phelp's personalities, experiences, and times. They also enable us to see the changes in taste, style, and availability of goods that took place between the colonial and federal periods.
