Tour the Farley Garrison House
Originally built in 1665 in Billerica, Mass., this saltbox garrison-style residence is believed to be one of the oldest homes in the country. It’s been masterfully rebuilt – along with several other period structures – in Gilmanton, N.H.
As in most homes of this period, just past the kitchen is a small borning room. While you may not be inclined to use the room for its originally intended purpose, it could be a cozy spot for reading or napping.
