The Phillips Historical Society Museum is located at 8 Pleasant Street. It is the former home of the Vose family. Built in 1829 for Captain Joel Whitney, it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum holds many fascinating collections from the early settlement of the community and through the years of the railroad into the late 20th century.
This is the master bedroom featuring the rope bed needing a "crank key" to tighten mattress ropes before retiring.
Each room in the PHS museum displays household items including furniture, textiles, and items typical of New England in the 1800's.
Beautiful hues of red cranberry glassware is arranged on the museum's kitchen hutch. Homes in New England would display special glass, bone china and pottery, often handed down through many generations.
We love our visitors from near and far, so feel free to come by during open house hours.
