What a neat spot! The house is that of the 'other' Paul Revere, the one who never had a poem about him go viral! Jouett made the same ride as Revere but through much more difficult conditions and under threat of capture. The house is lovely with furnishings representing the period. The visitor center has may unearthed artifacts and a... More

Stopped by to see the new plaque that was recently installed about the history of the place. I see no other reviews since I did one in March. Still a great place to stop and look around. Put it on your list when in Versailles!

The guided tours were closed but spent quite some time walking the grounds. Was surprised by the wonderful condition of the historic home. Will be coming back soon for a guided tour. Also the family cemetery was quite a surprise.

This place is a nice ride out into the country. We were back in the Versailles area and stopped by again. We lived across the street back in the 80's. We played around the property then and enjoyed the site. We knew the caretakers but they have changed now. Still a great historical place with a wonderful story of "... More

Captain Jouett rode his horse over forty miles through the rough wilderness to warn Thomas Jefferson and other American Revolutionary leaders of a plot by the British to capture them. One of Captain Jouett's sons is the famous portrait artist Matthew Harris Jouett. Several of his paintings are... More
