1810 CAPTAIN JOHN WILSON HOUSE

The 1810 Captain John Wilson House, located at 4 Elm Street, contains period household furnishings and exhibits about 19th-century life in Cohasset. Built by David Nichols and purchased later that year by Captain John Wilson, the house remained in the Wilson family until 1912.

 

Through the years the house became a marine supply store, tea room, gift shop, photographer's studio, and candy store until it became the Society's first headquarters and museum. The Wilson House remains the last unaltered example of the 19th-century residences that once comprised Cohasset's center village. ​

Open summers, Thursday-Saturday, 1 - 4 p.m.​
