United States.

The interior of the House is furnished authentically and boasts many special items, including period furniture, leaded-casement windows, and an indoor bake oven. The stone walls of the House are twenty-two inches thick. The House resembles medieval English architectural style.

The House was built in 1704 by William Brinton, Jr. (1670-1751) for his growing family — his wife Jane, and their six children: four sons and two daughters. Each of William and Jane's children married and their descendants make up most of the Brinton Family in America today.

The house was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1968.
