William Haskell House Tour

I took advantage of an opportunity offered by the William Haskell House and the Gloucester 400 to participate in a guided tour of the historic William Haskell House on Lincoln Street in Gloucester last Sunday. It was VERY interesting. It was a lovely spring-like day and our guide Vijay took 5 of us who had signed up previously on a 1 hour tour of the house and grounds. He stated he was doing 6 tours that day and they were all filled up. It was a “pay what you wish” event so no money was paid until you decided what you’d like to give. It was well worth the donation and the time. If you have any interest in Gloucester history or house history, I think this is the tour you want. It’s the most complete replication of a house from 1680s you can hope to experience. The donations collected will go toward further restoration. It is advertised as a lodging and Vijay told us they are considering hosting events as well. Well worth checking out! We were transported straight back to the early days of Gloucester and it was fascinating.
