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.

Last week new and experienced volunteers gathered at the Wolcott Keeper’s House, 9999 Bayshore Road in Danbury, to get reacquainted and to get ready to greet and inform the thousands of visitors that come throughout the season to enjoy the restored home, the museum, and adjacent historic cemetery, and to learn about life on the Firelands frontier.
