Color-logoThe Jeremiah Lee Mansion is a magnificent colonial Georgian home built by American craftsmen in 1768 when Lee was the wealthiest merchant and ship owner in Massachusetts. Preserved in its nearly original state, the house stands as a tribute to both colonial America’s strong ties to England and its independent commercial success.
Many of the Mansion’s original decorative elements have been preserved, including rare 18th century English hand-painted wallpapers – the only such wall treatments surviving in place. The house is furnished with an outstanding collection of early American furniture, including examples by Boston, Salem and Marblehead cabinet-makers. Decorative arts from the 18th and 19th centuries include ceramics, silver, mirrors, clocks, and textiles.

Guided tours of eighteen furnished rooms on three floors give visitors an overview of the daily life, surroundings, and occupations of Marblehead residents. Tours are offered  June through October,  Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. $10 Admission, Free to members.
