Beautiful to visit anytime with fabulous tours. Check for open dates and times. Gingerbread house festival tradition at Christmas always fun.

We took a nice tour of the mansion with a knowledgeable guide and enjoyed the history of the house and its builder, Jeremiah Lee. The furnishings are not original to the house but most everything else is, including the one of a kind painted wallpaper.

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.

Step back in time and imagine being the one to dance in gowns and balance on elegant stairs. Wander the gardens among plants original from the 18th century. Original wallpaper still hanging!

The woodwork on the staircase & downstairs is worth the visit alone. The best historic house in the area. Good insight into the history of the area
