After the structure ceased to be a business it was a private residence for seven families, the last of which was the Gilliam Willson Anderson family. After Gilliam’s death, the Anderson heirs deeded the property to the town of Blackstone with the intention that it be restored and opened to the public. Come share our pride and become a part of Blackstone’s historic tradition. Call to book a tour today! Guided tours are free of charge and cater to your specific needs. An interactive children’s tour is available and groups are welcome.
