The hiking trails and colonial "housewife's garden" at the Weeks Brick House are open daily for self-guided enjoyment from dawn to dusk. An interpretive sign with text, graphics, and photos is located by the walkway at the rear of the house. Please respect the privacy of our tenants.
The 1710 Weeks Brick House, while it is a precious architectural relic listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is not open for regularly-scheduled tours. The house is open for tours during the Weeks Brick House Annual Meeting in late summer. Interpretive architectural tours of the exterior are available to small groups by appointment.
Hot off the press is the publication of The Vistor's Guide to the Weeks Brick House & Gardens. Because the 1710 brick house continues to be a home and is not open for public visitation, this book serves the desire of architecture/history enthusiasts and Weeks descendants alike for an authoritative self-guided tour of exterior and interior features. Illustrated with maps, diagrams, and photos, the information-packed 64-page soft-cover book also includes summaries of early Weeks family geneaology and early Greenland history, as well as self-guided tours of the Colonial-era herb gardens and the walking trails on our conservation land. Authored by museum professional, WBH board member, and Leonard Weeks descendant R. W. Bacon, the book is available from the publisher through the WBH website. The cost is $16.00, which includes book-rate shipping in the U.S. For information about the book and how you can order your copy, simply click here.
The parking lot for the hiking trails on the Weeks Brick House conservation land is located off Tide Mill Road, several hundred yards past the turnoff to Weeks Avenue and the driveway to the Weeks Brick House. The unpaved parking area is on the left. The trail entrance adjoins the parking lot. For a detailed Trail Map, click here. To take the audio tour as you walk the trails, click here.
