Iconic and Unique

Built circa 1699 for the Honorable Isaac Winslow on land granted to his Grandfather, Mayflower passenger Edward Winslow, the Winslow House is one of the least-altered houses still standing in the former Plymouth Colony.  The Winslow House is on the National Register of Historic Places and open to the public for tours, as well as public and private events May through October.

No trip to the South Shore is complete without a visit to the Winslow House.  This authentic 320+ year old house brings history to life.  No matter your age, there is something here to capture your imagination.  Come to Marshfield and take a step back in time.

We are open for tours following every public event and select Sundays during open houses.  See our event calendar for details.  If you would like to schedule a tour outside of these hours, email or call 781-837-5753


If you are interested in holding your private event at The Historic Winslow House, email 

We look forward to your visit!

 Colonial Tavern N
ight ~ Friday, October 13 ~ 7pm

It is spring of 1775 and news of "the shot heard 'round the world" is spreading like fire from a musket.  The citizens of Marshfield have gathered at the local tavern to read the broadsheets and voice their opinions.  Discord ensues.  Loyalist, Joshua Winslow bursts through the door proclaiming, "treason at Lexington and Concord!"  Patriots counter with chants of "liberty!"  
Come hear the debate...and choose where your loyalties lie.  
Join us for this theatrical interpretation, as well as live music, tavern-style games and food.  Ales, hard cider & mulled wine will be served at our cash bar.  The lower floor of the historic house will be ope
