The Benjamin Lincoln House stands in the heart of one of New England’s most historic towns—as it has for over 350 years. Its most famous resident, Major General Benjamin Lincoln, 1733-1810, was the fourth Lincoln to own the house that his great-grandfather Thomas built around 1665. Remarkably, for an additional seven generations after General Lincoln, spanning another 200 years, the Lincoln family continued to call his house home.

In 2020, after 11 generations and 375 years, the Benjamin Lincoln House was sold to The Hingham Historical Society and in 2021, the majority of the contents of the home were gifted to the Society. We are proud to steward this Hingham town treasure into its fourth century and excited to share with you the American History stories it brings to life. We invite you to join us for a tour and to give charitably to our ongoing Campaign for the Benjamin Lincoln House.

Tours are offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
The Benjamin Lincoln House is ADA accessible through the front entrance, however please be advised certain portions of the house museum have limited or no accessibility due to the preservation of the historic structure and landscape.  Handicap parking available on site. Book a Tour Here.
