Attraction details
Owner description: Shipping merchant Jonathan Hamilton built this striking Georgian mansion c. 1785. Its picturesque situation on a bluff overlooking the Salmon Falls River made it an ideal location for Hamilton’s shipping business and, more than a hundred years later, for the summer retreat of Emily Tyson and her stepdaughter Elise.Today, Hamilton House reflects the occupancy of the Tysons in the early twentieth century and is recognized as one of the region's quintessential Colonial Revival-style country estates. The house features two whimsical murals commissioned by the women as well as antique furnishings and handcrafted decorative arts they collected. The elaborate perennial garden, with its charming garden cottage, provides visitors with a place to stroll and picnic overlooking the river. Please visit nearby Jackson House, Governor John Langdon House, Rundlet-May House, Sarah Orne Jewett House, and the Sayward-Wheeler House.

If you are visiting South Berwick make a point to check out the Hamilton House. There is not a bad time of year to tour the grounds.

Visiting the Hamilton House and gardens (a Historic New England site) was a real pleasure. The gardens are beautiful as well as the setting on the Salmon Falls River. During the month of July the Hamilton House holds late afternoon concerts and yesterday's concert was performed by the Quintessentials, a five person quintet (wind percussion group); they were absolutely wonderful performing in part the American Songbook and other classical pieces. Each Sunday a different groups performs during the month of July. The Hamilton House itself is worth the trip itself. Bring your own chairs and picnic The concert and house tour are free to members

A wonderful place to spend a day. The house and grounds are lovely, especially when the flowers are in bloom! You can also follow a trail from Hamilton House to Vaughan Woods which has miles of trails along the water.
