The Cabot House is a Georgian style mansion built in 1781 during the Revolutionary War, the first brick mansion built in Beverly.

The wealth of the Cabot family is reflected in the architecture of the house, the beautifully carved paneling, and decorations such as the Dutch tiles surrounding the fireplace.

The building has three floors of exhibits, including Beverly and the American Revolution, the Walker Transportation Collection, and changing exhibits by the student-run Bear Gallery of Montserrat College of Art.

Current major exhibit is, “The Global Highway: How the Sea Connected Beverly to the World.”

Open on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, 10-4 and on Wednesday 1-9
