Briton Hammon: Slavery and the Sea and the 2017 Annual Meeting!

This Saturday, starting at 10:30am, former Winslow House Director Aaron Dougherty will present a lecture on Briton Hammon.  A slave who resided here at the Winslow House, Briton Hammon was a part time sailor in the British Navy and would go on to recount his adventures in the first narrative to be written from the perspective of a slave in America!

Stick around for lunch and join us afterward for our 2017 Annual Meeting! The meeting will revisit highlights from the year and feature the presentation of The Historic Winslow House Mayflower Award to one of our most dedicated volunteers: Julius Prince!

Fundraise the Roof!

For generations, the 1699 Isaac Winslow House in Marshfield has been more than just a house.  It has sheltered families through some of the most pivotal times in New England’s early history. The Winslow House has continued through the centuries to provide a perfect place for families to come together to share old stories and begin new ones, to create lasting memories and kindle passion for our nation’s origin stories. So many stories, all under one roof; a roof that now needs your help.  Please consider making a donation towards our  goal for preservation and repairs to the highest point of the Winslow House.
