Originally built in 1641, Wing Fort House is the oldest house in New England owned and occupied continuously by one family. . Wing descendants made it their home for over three centuries. Now restored, it is furnished almost entirely with Wing family antiques, each room honoring different periods of its long history.
Across the street from the Wing Fort House is the Wing Memorial History Center. The History Center houses collections, exhibits and other information related to the descendants of Stephen, Daniel and John Wing, who came from England in 1632.
Our most recent exhibit, "Whaling Wings" explores the whaling industry in New England and the Wing ancestors who were involved in it.
