300 years,
Six generations,
One remarkable survivor.


Home to sea captains, merchants, explorers and even a royal governor, the Warner House is rich with stories of family history.



The earliest, urban brick house in northern New England, the Warner House is considered a fine example of early-Georgian architecture with its sumptuous moldings and richly-paneled interiors. 



When entering the main hall, the murals are one of the most uniquely impressive and dramatic features of the Warner House.

The grand dame of Daniel Street

warner house  Built c.1716 for Capt. Archibald Macpheadris, the Warner House remained in the family for six generations until the early 1930s.  The property was for sale, and an oil company had plans to raze the house for a gas station.  In March 1932, the newly-organized Warner House Association purchased the historic property, saving it from demolition. That summer, the house opened to the public as a museum.  Open seasonally, the Warner House offers daily tours of family-furnished rooms as well as numerous special events.
