What was life like 200 years ago? Compare your everyday life with the way the Jay family lived in the early 1800s. This 25-minute tour of the historic house, designed will focus on the lack of modern conveniences and its impact on everyday life through examining objects such as chamber pots and open-hearth toasters.
The number of tickets available for each tour is strictly limited. We strongly recommend you purchase your tickets in advance. Please note that all members of your party are required to have a ticket for admittance, even if there is no fee associated with their ticket. Tickets are transferable, but not refundable.
We recommend that you arrive 15 to 20 minutes in advance of your tour to watch our orientation video shown in the Glass Porch of the Historic House Museum. Tours leave promptly as scheduled. You may not join a tour once it is in progress.
