The Old Ordinary is a remarkable example of early American architectural and cultural history, built on the main road from Boston for stagecoach travelers to stop “for an ordinary meal” and a drink in the taproom. A home and family business, the Ordinary served local travelers for over 150 years as a meeting place to exchange news, celebrate events, see friends and sample the latest batch of cider. In addition to the 1686 House Museum, the property includes the Olmsted Garden, the Old Fort and the Arts and Crafts Annex.
Open for tours and special events mid-June through September and again in November for the popular Candlelight Tours.
Now open in December: Thursdays at 11AM and Fridays at 1PM
