From Wiscasset, Maine, to Lincoln, Rhode Island, to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, learn about the people who lived in stone-enders, urban mansions, rural estates, and working farms during free guided tours at Historic New England’s house museums. Hours are from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., tours are on the hour, the last tour starts at 4:00 p.m. All tours are first-come, first-served.
