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 info@winslowhouse.org or call 781-837-5753

The Historic Winslow House is pleased to announce that we will begin restoration of the front door this spring.  Front doors were very important during colonial times, serving as a focal point and a statement of what guests should expect when they walked through the threshold.   Families such as the Winslows would have wanted their front door to express both welcoming and status.  We look forward to sharing pictures of the newly restored and stained front door upon completion.

This project is being funded in part through a grant approved by the Americana Corner Preserving America Grant Program. Americana Corner was founded by Tom Hand in 2020 as an online resource to help others rediscover America’s incredible founding and first century of expansion.The Preserving America Grant Program assists organizations that tell the story of our nation’s wonderful past and rekindle a love for American history in all its splendor.

History gives us identity.  History allows us insight into the present - how our society evolved, how our values were shaped and how our culture came to be.  There is much we can learn if we listen to the voices of the past. An understanding of previous generations can often help us answer the pressing questions of today.

That is why preserving historic houses is so important.  Stepping into a historic house is the closest we can come to stepping into the past. The Historic Winslow House Association is dedicated to maintaining and preserving this beacon of our past for future generations.  We could not do this without support from the public.  Your generosity is essential to our mission.  

In addition to completing preservation projects, your contribution enables us to offer enriching educational programs and special events for the public. We gratefully accept any donation and hope you can visit us soon.
