One of the oldest houses in Cape Cod, the Hoxie House dates back to 1675, occupied by a local reverend and his family of 13 children. The Sandwich, Massachusetts, home is a historical landmark and scenic destination on the Cape.
Hoxie House, first the home of the reverend and legislative representative, passed hands to Abraham Hoxie, a whaling captain, in the 19th century. It wasn't until the 1950s that the house found its way to the town of Sandwich and it was then that the home was restored as a historical landmark. Now, the house is fully restored and furnished with period decor. The house, lived in until the mid-20th century, was never upgraded with modern amenities such as electricity and indoor plumbing which keeps with the colonial period. Your group can tour the property and see not only the interior of the colonial home but explore the grounds as well. The house museum is closed from mid-October through mid-June.
Nearby is the Dexter Grist Mill, one of the oldest water mill sites in the United States, and you can even take home some freshly ground cornmeal as a unique souvenir!
