Large, graciously decorated rooms, many with original wallpapers, reveal the extent of the Stanton family's entrepreneurial success.
Among the house's most striking features are the moveable wall panels in the two front parlor rooms. Designed so that the entire wall could be lifted up and hooked to the ceiling, these unique wall panels allowed the Stanton family to open both front rooms, creating an enormous space in which family worship services could be held.
The General Store
Containing a rare trove of original documents and inventory, the General Store was operated by the Stantons throughout the 1800s. Selling a wide array of dry goods from baskets to salt to tools and tea, the store's ledger books document prices paid and charged for things that were essential to daily life in early Colonial times.
