The guided tour includes period rooms decorated in 18th, 19th, and 20th century styles and covers how the property was used as a vestry by the colonial church, as a book depot by Parson Weems (George Washington’s first biographer and author of the cherry tree story), as a law office by Benjamin Botts (Aaron Burr’s youngest defense attorney during his 1807 treason trial) and as a home for nearly a century by the Merchant Family. This special springtime program will be offered on the second Sunday of the month in April, May, and June. The May program is offered on Mother’s Day. Each program runs from 10:00am-11:30am.
