I am not entirely sure if this place is open to the public during the day anymore. I had the opportunity to stop in on the Dead of Night tour. I would reccommend taking that tour just so you can get inside of this house. It is well maintained with period decorated rooms. If you take the tour, they will... More

Tiny place that really exemplifies the simplicity and bareness of the early American settlements. With the realization that almost everything needed to be self-made, few "worldly" possessions cluttered the small spaces of settlers. Each piece has a story and functionality was certainly important. In summary, nice stop appreciated most by adults and history or antique buffs, not really appropriate for... More

This house has been in the same family for generations since the mid 1700's -- the last inhabitant living there until the mid 1950s. Very interesting tour of the house, many features remaining the same over all the time it was in the family. See the picture of the ancestor in the front sitting room -- the telescope he holds...

Our family bought a membership to the Plymouth Antiquarian Society in August and were able to visit the Spooner House before it closed for the year and take a tour with our family. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the house and with Plymouth history in general. Was an hour well spent going back in history. If you want... More

Loved the historical information... went during a "Ghost Tour" but nothing creepy happened. Course you can't make them do anything, but it was still really neat.

We had a wonderful (personal) tour with a woman named Barbara. She was very familiar with the house's history, as well as the history of Plymouth. Few people visit, so it seems easy to get a personal or very small tour. Amazingly, a man was living in the house until the early 1950s, among two centuries of family heirlooms! $4.50... More
