If your into history this is a must see. Recently restored original home of the Rev. Dennis shows what life was like in 17th century Dennis. Period dressed staff are very knowledgeable and Dennis days include local militia. Easy access from 6a. Air conditioned!

Very educational and informative! Everyone is dressed in period clothes and very helpful! No charge for tour just suggested donation. Well worth it!

If you want to see a historical site this is a good one. Doesn't take much time but worth the stop. If the militia are there it's an added bonus

Nice job done recently to restore the site. Informative, even kids could be interested. Go during the Holidays when the decos are a nice addition. Always good to see & hear the local history!

It was a fun short visit. I personally, would rather be outdoors so being in an old house and school house were interesting, but not unlike others I have seen in the past. To be in Dennis, though, it is worth a visit since Dennis...More
