The Wayside, home of Nathaniel Hawthorne, at Minute Man National Historical Park

Minute Man National Historical Park has one of the largest, if not the largest, collection of historical homes within the National Park system. However, very few are actually open other than during the Patriot’s Day celebration every April 19th. Currently, only the Whittemore House, Hartwell Tavern, and The Wayside are open on a regular basis, though this may be for only a few days each week during the tourist season.

See the following web pages here on National Park Planner for more information about the houses.

The Old Manse and the Robbins House are also located within the North Bridge Unit, but they are owned and managed by other organizations, not the National Park Service. Therefore, I did not visit or review these houses.
