MANCHESTER HISTORICAL MUSEUM
Welcome to Manchester-by-the-Sea!
In the heart of it all is the town Common, with the beautiful 1809 meeting house and the historic Seaside One firehouse (1832 hand-tub and 1900 steamer). Nearby stands the 1823 Abigail Hooper Trask house, home to our History Center and formerly the residence of the only unmarried woman in Massachusetts to build her own business and her own house.
Come time-travel to Manchester to meet Abigail and other interesting characters from the town’s surprising past—we’re bringing history to life in the 21st century!
We are located in the heart of Manchester-by-the-Sea at
10 Union Street
