One of the coolest things about the Gardner House is that everyone sees something different when they look at it. Our pictures are full of people pointing to things, looking at things, and discussing.
Some people see it and want to talk right away. And others have questions.
And others decide to take it all in first.
A lot of our visitors, at one point or another strike this pose:
For everyone, its different. Maybe its the shoes.
Is it surprise? Affirmation? But when people see the house, and when they reach that point when they need to stop and consider, something special is happening. Something that can't happen without touching, smelling, feeling the history.
The house has brought people together for 200 years. We have a lot to learn. If you haven't had the chance to make the trip, take another look at that calendar. We would love to host you.
