The Edward Bellamy House is open to visitors seasonally, or by appointment. We offer permanent exhibits on Edward Bellamy, the Bellamy family, and the work of photographer Daniel Hanifan. The house also features parlors decorated in Victorian style. We offer a half hour presentation on Edward Bellamy for those who are interested in learning more about his life and work.
Hours: We are currently not open regular hours due to challenges imposed by COVID-19. Check back later in the summer or follow us on Facebook for announcements about our open status.
