Take a tour through the Hearthside House Museum on this last opportunity before the holiday festivities begin next month. Docents in period attire will provide a comprehensive guided tour, detailing the history of the 1810 mansion. Filled with antiques and artifacts from the 19th century, guests can imagine what it was like to live here centuries ago as they tour through the three floors of the house. The attic features the original looms of the Talbot family who were nationally-renowned for their hand weaving business, The Hearthside Looms, a hundred years ago. Learn about the local history of Great Road, one of America's first colonial highways, as well as about the families who called Hearthside their home. Tours last an hour and begin every 15 minutes with the last one given at 3:00 p.m.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Hearthside was reportedly built with lottery winnings by Stephen Hopkins Smith to win the heart of a young lady. It's architectural significance resulted in the selection of Hearthside as the model for the Rhode Island state building at the 1904 St. Louis Exposition.

Admission is $8/adults; $6 seniors and veterans; $4 ages 10-17; under 10 and members free.

The Friends of Hearthside, an all-volunteer organization, operates this town-owned property and all proceeds benefit its continued preservation and restoration.
