Tate House Museum Tours

This iconic home in the heart of quiet Maine was built in 1755 and served as the primary residence for George Tate, the Senior Mast Agent for the British Royal Navy. Its clapboard siding and unique gambrel roof have made it an architectural staple in the city of Portland and it attracts history lovers and design students every year.

Visitors will learn about this famous British settler and gain insight not only into the day-to-day life of George Tate and his family, but historic trade practices and 18th century American existence. Architectural tours highlight unique features like attic rafters and the massive chimney. Travelers can also opt for a garden tour of the grounds or a Stroudwater Cemetery tour, to see the final resting place of the Tates.

Travelers can check out the house on their own and sign up for a tour of the site the day of, or call ahead to book one of the architectural, garden or cemetery tours in advance.
