Loved this tour. We had a great tour guide and it was such a treat to see a house exactly as it was lived in.

No museum you'll ever see will leave the impression you'll get as a result of visiting this attraction. It is simply unique and completely indescribable. You just will not be prepared for what you will see, because it is so hard to imagine the mentality that created it all. Impress and amaze your friends by taking them for a visit to this remarkable place. Brunswick will never seem the same when you're finished.

Wonderful Victorian home in downtown Brunswick, little changed since it was built around the Civial War. Donated to the local historical society "as is" by descendents of the original family.

This is really two houses joined together, and one side is still set up the way it was when the family left nearly a century ago. There are wonderful antiques and mementoes of a bygone era here, and it was also the home of both a sea captain and the doctor who ushered in modern forensic science. (Frank Whittier began what has now become CSI.)

Great Victorian house in Brunswick - built and lived in by one family until 1980's (?). House is jammed packed with personal furniture and items left by the last sister who lived there and who left the house to the historical society. You will enjoy it as it is left nearly as it was lived in.
