Phoenix Mill House – Open House Day

August 17, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

It’s too hot to cook but the Prescotts plan to welcome guests into the house for a cooling summer beverage on this special open house day. Step back in time and learn what life was like for the Prescotts, a millworker’s family in 1830s Peterborough. While you are visiting, you can join Mrs. Prescott in keeping house and try your hand at doing laundry and cleaning 19th century style.

The Phoenix Mill House is a 19th century mill overseer’s home. The Phoenix Mill was a large textile factory that once stood at the corner of Main and Grove Street in Peterborough. The mill house is located directly behind the Monadnock Center’s main building at 19 Grove Street.

This open house program is free and all are welcome.
