The Brewster Historical Society, established in 1964, collects and preserves the artifacts and history of Brewster to ensure their future accessibility. Its Cobb House Museum, an historic sea captain’s home, houses four permanent galleries, a special exhibition gallery and an extensive documents research area accessible by appointment. The Society also operates the Windmill Village complex adjacent to the grounds of Drummer Boy Park. Windmill Village includes the 1795 Higgins Farm Windmill, 1867 Blacksmith Shop and the 1795 Harris-Black House, an original “small house.”
The Cobb house is open Saturdays, 1-4 and the Windmill Village Saturdays, 12-3, through Columbus Day.
