Wolcott Keeper’s House summer season

The Wolcott Keeper’s House’s summer season starts Monday, June 10, with Monday through Friday hours from 1-5 p.m. through Aug. 30th.   Trained docents and greeters are on hand to answer questions and to share the history of the 1820’s stone home of the first keeper of the Marblehead Light, Benajah Wolcott.   The house is also open June 8 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
