We love visiting the Historic New England properties. They are all beautiful, and give a great glimpse of how things were in days gone by. Castle Tucker is a Federal Era mansion, which was decorated in the Victorian Era. It is quite beautiful. The view is also beautiful.
Our tour guide was Jennifer and she was so informative. Also patient with my many questions. This house has such an interesting history and so fortunate to have much of it in the same condition it was in 150 years ago. A Maine treasure.
We had a fantastic guide on our visit - totally knowledgeable about the house, the family and all of the history which was fascinating The house itself is very interesting in design and how it was built. Most interesting central stairway we have ever come across. Great view of the harbor as well. The surrounding neighborhood is worth seeing as... 更多
This is my third visit with out-of-state friends and always enjoyable. This house has an interesting history and original furniture, floors, wallpaper, and outstanding stairway. Each guide has made this house come alive. If you like old homes and history this is the place to visit.

My husband and I visited on a quiet Sunday in July and had a wonderful guide named Jane. She was well informed, enthusiastic, and great to talk with. It was just us on the tour, and when I mentioned I also work in a historic house museum, Jane really connected with us (although being a great guide, I'm sure she... 更多
Castle Tucker was situated in a quiet residential neighborhood of upscale homes near the Sheepscot River and away from the congested downtown area where parking is a challenge. There was adequate parking in the semi-circular driveway and on the street, if needed. Admission fees were: $8 - Adults $7 - Seniors $4 - Students On arrival in the office, I... 更多
Such a beautiful stop and destination that it was well worth the small admission fee. Excellent tour guides who are very well versed in the early history of the Wisc. area. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys local history or beautiful craftsmanship.
For the past 2 years my Aunt and I have been trying to visit this historic home and today when we finally got the chance and boy, it was worth the wait. As you enter the premises you are greeted by Mrs. ROXANE Althouse, a very delightful and enthusiastic historian who puts so much pride and energy into her position.... 更多
