Massasoit Historical Association and Maxwell House [RI]

The Maxwell House was built between 1752 and 1756 by the Reverend Samuel Maxwell. The house, which is the oldest brick dwelling in Warren, is distinguished by the distinctive Flemish bond pattern of the brickwork, its field stone foundation, and its large central chimney. The Maxwell House is maintained by the Society as a working museum.

The house offers tours, educational programs, and occasional recreational and educational events.
