The Farnsworth Homestead, an historic Victorian residence, was the home of William Farnsworth and his family in Rockland, Maine. Built in 1849, the home was designed in the architectural style known as Greek Revival. Lucy also left instructions that the family’s house be maintained with the original furnishings and be kept open to the public. Because of her generosity and foresight, we are fortunate to have a time capsule of Victorian life, complete with original furniture, where students learn about mid-nineteenth century lifestyles and customs of a merchant-class family.
All visitors to the Homestead will be provided a pair of booties (shoe covers). No high heels or bare feet are permitted on the tours. Please wear comfortable shoes. Please note that the Homestead is not wheelchair accessible.
