The Edward Bellamy House is open to visitors seasonally, or by appointment. We offer permanent exhibits on Edward Bellamy and his family and photographer Daniel Hanifan, and the house features parlors decorated in Victorian style. A half hour presentation is available for visitors who are interested in learning more about Bellamy’s life and work. In the off season, we also offer virtual presentations about Edward Bellamy and the Bellamy House to groups of five or more.
