The Marblehead Museum consists of several buildings including the Jeremiah Lee Mansion and the museum across the street. Check online for hours and reservations but don't miss this opportunity to step into an authentic mansion from Marblehead's booming 18th century.

In early Marblehead, we had some successful merchants. With the success certainly came the finer things of life. You can view how a successful merchant used his resources to build at that time one of the best residences in Marblehead. It is a short visit...More
