Plan Your Visit to the Joseph Bates Home

Joseph Bates Home

has been restored on the outside.  The inside is being restored and a museum will eventually be installed.  Because of construction interior tours may be limited as work conditions dictate.  Guided visits are still being offered giving the homes history and stories of the Bates family who lived there.
Questions can be directed to Lloyd and Dora Hallock, site directors at the Bates Home.  Feel free to call 774-328-6247 to schedule your visit.  This site does not currently have regular hours and visits are best scheduled in advance.  Drop-ins are welcome, but may not have access to guides and tours.  You may also e-mail us at
