Open House at the Mann House Museum to be held alongside the Scituate Garden Club Annual Plant Sale
About the Mann House Museum
That the Mann family saved everything is an understatement. The result is a remarkable record of one Yankee family – from the arrival of colonial settler Richard Mann in 1640 to the death of Percy Thomas Mann in 1968.
Each generation of Mann’s respectfully and dutifully preserved their ancestors’ possessions. Sea captains, ministers, sailmakers, carpenters, farmers, beekeepers, shoe makers, fishermen, teachers, and soldiers are all represented here. Many of the belongings date back to Pilgrim days and have never left Scituate…nor this house.
Visitors will see primitive furniture, shoe-making and sail-making tools, children’s toys, textiles, fine art, early farming equipment and rare documents and books. Today, this collection constitutes one of the most valuable, varied, and authentic representations of early American life in the country.
