From a female head of household to domestic servants, King Caesar House has been home to many women over the years. Join DRHS Archivist and Historian Carolyn Ravenscroft to examine their lives and occupations.
The house is presented for tours as it appeared in the 1820s. The house is noted for its rare French scenic wallpapers, portraits of sea captains, and 19th century furnishings. In the 20th century, the house was the headmaster’s house for the Powder Point School for Boys, and later, was the home of Austrian painter Elisabeth-Weber Fulop.
On your visit, stop at Bumpus Park across the street, the remnants of King Caesar’s wharf and today a beautiful, waterfront park.
Tours are at 11am and 1pm.
