Did you know?
The original Crocker homestead was purchased by an artist, Ralph Eugene Cahoon Jr. early in the last century. Rosemary Rapp bought it 30 years ago and converted into today’s museum.
Early Cotuit resident Ebenezer Crocker began building the stately Colonial Georgian home that constitutes the original part of the museum in 1775. By 1821, his grandson Ezra Crocker was operating the place as a tavern, an important overnight stop on the stagecoach line between Sandwich and Hyannis.
