Join the Warner House at the Olde Home Day and celebrate the “original brick” building’s 300th anniversary! The family reunion is open to all and includes descendants of the extended Warner and Wentworth families. Learn more about the families. The matriarch of the Warner House was Sarah Wentworth, daughter of Lt. Gov. John Wentworth and brother of Royal Gov. Benning Wentworth. Sarah married Archibald Macpheadris in 1717 and lived in this house. The Wentworths were a large mercantile family provincial dynasty, both socially and politically, and today, many of the Wentworth descendants still live in the area.

Warner House Welcomes You To Our 83rd Season!

Today, The Warner House opens for the season! Soar on in for a tour from 11 to 4!

Since 1932, the Warner House has opened its doors to the public as a house museum. The house has been home to sea captains, merchants, explorers and even a royal governor. Truly unique to the c.1716 brick house are the wall murals:  the oldest, extant, Anglo-American wall paintings in America!

The eagle pictured must have flew off its mural, so this season, plan a visit and make sure its back on the wall clutching its prey.  Help support the house and the preservation efforts of its contents like the murals by becoming a member.
