The Museum has just moved to its new quarters on Lower County Road--The Captain Elijah Cobb House, 739 Lower Road, Brewster. The house has been lovingly restored and contains an interesting exhibit about the history of Brewster.

We visited the museum inside this summer and enjoyed the museum. This time we walked the trails. The trails are very easy. There were some stairs near the end of our walk however, nothing strenuous.
