I walk by this place on a daily basis on my way to the light house to look at the tide as it moves. It is a lovely little house and the museum next to it has amazing volunteers that are full of knowledge.

Liverpool was settled by New Englanders in the mid 1700's and the historic district still reflects this heritage. The owner of this old house kept a famous diary that makes for interesting reading.
